Minor in Arts

An acceptable program must comprise courses in the Faculty of Arts that are for credit towards a Bachelor of Arts degree and consists of 18 upper-level credits in a single subject field or specialization. Students should design a coherent, academically sound course of studies for their program Minor, which must be approved by the Kinesiology Advising office once you are third year standing. All courses must be acceptable for a Bachelor of Arts Major in the proposed subject area or field, but a student is not bound by the other requirements that the Faculty of Arts sets for a Major or Minor in the field.

Note that the 18 credits must be percentage-graded, and cannot be taken as Credit/D/Fail.

Students who wish to pursue a Minor in Arts should be aware of the prerequisites for many of the upper-level courses (300/400-level) in Arts.

Students who wish to pursue further studies in the Faculty of Education should be aware that courses which are acceptable for an Arts Minor may not necessarily meet the requirements for a teaching concentration in the Faculty of Education.

Upon successful completion of the Minor program, the notation of “Minor in Arts” will be added to the student’s transcript.
