Minor and Certificate Advisors

Minor and certificate advisors represent their respective academic departments or disciplines and are intimately familiar with specific minor requirements. They have the most current knowledge of discipline-specific things like...

  • course offerings
  • curricular sequence
  • independent study projects
  • research and internships
  • professional organizations
  • current trends
  • graduate schools
  • careers related to the field

We strongly recommend that students communicate frequently with minor advisors, even prior to declaring a minor, so they can make informed decisions. Feel free to reach out to any minor advisor at any time. You may declare a minor only after declaring a major, and then we encourage you to meet with your major and minor advisors each semester.
