What’s a minor?
A minor is a set of 7 or more classes in an academic field which are designed to go beyond the introductory level but not enough to be considered a major. You can minor in any academic discipline except your major. Obtaining a minor (or minors) is optional.
Declaring a Minor
Philosophy minors do not need to be officially declared. Notify your academic counselor (in the School of your major) to add the minor to your degree audit, and then complete the required courses for the minor. To officially receive a minor, you must also list it on your Application for Graduation.
Requirements for the Philosophy Minor
The UCI General Catalogue provides the official listing of University, School, and Minor requirements:
- University Requirements (General Education, Grade, and Residency Requirements, etc.)
- School of Humanities Requirements
- Philosophy Minor Requirements
You can overlap a maximum of 2 classes between your major and your minor. You cannot overlap classes between two minors.
You can take a maximum of 2 classes for P/NP to count toward a minor.
