Minor in Arts and Sciences

A minor for Arts and Sciences students requires the completion of 15 semester hours, including 6 upper-division hours, in a coherent program of study. The criterion of coherence may be met in either of two ways: (1) by following the minor curriculum prescribed by any department or college at TTU, so long as it includes at least 6 upper-division hours; (2) if such a  minor curriculum is not available in the chosen department or college, by taking the 15 semester hours, including 6 at the upper division, in a single discipline—i.e., normally, courses with the same course prefix, but students should check with the department offering the minor before assuming this. Exception: A minor in physics will consist of at least 15 hours of coursework including PHYS 2110 , PHYS 2120 , PHYS 2420 , PHYS 2920  and one upper division physics course. Approved interdisciplinary minors in the College of Arts and Sciences are:


A minor in Women and Gender Studies requires completion of WGS 2010  and a minimum of 12 additional credit hours of course work (including 6 upper division hours) in approved courses.

The remaining 6 credit hours:

Electives include additional core courses listed above or courses from the list below. Students may also individually contract with course instructor to emphasize women and/or gender issues through course content and/or course work. The WGS advisor may also approve additional courses as electives if the specific version of that course contains a significant focus on women and/or gender studies.


No student will receive credit toward both the major and minor from the same course. Student contracts must be approved by the instructor before the last day to add classes.
