Minors

What is a minor?

Minors are official programs of study; when completed, they are noted on the student's official transcript.  The number of courses required to complete a minor varies depending on the program, but is typically much fewer than the number of courses for a major.

A minor should be thought of as an optional direction for elective credit.  Students are not encouraged to pursue a minor if it will extend their graduation or result in an excess credit hour surcharge.

The following applies to all business minors (unless stated otherwise):

  • In accordance with university policy, 75% of the credits in the minor must be taken at FAU.
  • Courses used for the minor must be completed with a grade of "C" or better.
  • Minors are available to undergraduate degree-seeking students upon successful completion of the minor coursework and the simultaneous successful completion of a bachelor's degree from FAU.
  • It is not possible to pursue a major and minor in the same subject.

Other policies may apply.  Refer to the university catalog or speak to a business advisor for more information.
