Minor program planning guides

Minor course requirements are not available to view through the online degree audit. Use the following Minor program planning guides to track the completion of your Minor graduation requirements.

Students planning to complete a minor should check with an Academic Advisor early in their studies so that they can ensure that they meet all requirements before graduation. Most courses at the 300 and 400 level have prerequisites, so students should consider those prerequisites when selecting their 100 and 200 level courses. 

Students must declare their intention to complete a minor. The form is available through the Student Success Centre.

Students can declare a maximum of one Minor for graduation.
