Minor Requirements

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:

Overlapping Classes

You can overlap a maximum of 2 classes between your major and your minor.  You cannot overlap classes between two minors.

Pass/Not Pass

You can take a maximum of 2 classes for P/NP to count toward a minor.
