What is a minor?
In keeping with the principles of liberal education, the University of Lethbridge offers minors in a variety of areas. Minors are available across Faculties and Schools and provide students in undergraduate programs the opportunity to pursue their interests in an area or areas distinct from their chosen major and degree program.
A minor is a defined set of courses, designed to provide depth in a particular discipline, study in an interdisciplinary area, or focus on a theme-related topic.
Students may wish to consider declaring a minor for a variety of reasons: to enhance the depth of knowledge in a diverse area, to gain exposure to a range of perspectives, to build a foundation for an intended career, to pursue multiple passions, or to broaden talents.
For available minors, descriptions and detailed requirements, please visit the Registrar's Office minors page.
Contact an Academic Advisor to help you add a minor to your degree.
