Minors & Certificates
The College of Business offers opportunities for undergraduate students to enhance their major programs with minors and certificates.

MINORS are official programs of study; when completed, they are noted on the student’s official transcript. You can view a list of all available minors and required courses as well as learn more about minor policies and advising.
CERTIFICATES are noted on the student's transcript, but they do not require the completion of a bachelor’s degree to be recorded. In addition, students receive a document to note the completion of the program. You can view a list of all available certificates and required courses as well as learn more about certificate policies and advising.
