UT Dallas 2014 Undergraduate Catalog

School of Arts and Humanities

Minors

Students must take a minimum of 18 semester credit hours for the minor, 12 of which must be upper-division semester credit hours. Students who take a minor will be expected to meet the normal prerequisites in courses making up the minor, and should maintain a minimum GPA of 2.000 on a 4.00 scale (C average). Semester credit hours may not be used to satisfy both the major and minor requirements; however, free elective hours or major preparatory classes may be used to satisfy the minor. Core courses offered by the school may count as lower-division hours toward the minor. Topics courses must be approved by the school.
