Undergraduate Minors

A minor consists of a minimum of 18 hours in a field other than the major, of which at least 6 hours must be advanced and completed at Tarleton State University.

Declaration of a minor by the student is optional in most degree programs but strongly recommended. There are restrictions on minors for the interdisciplinary degree programs (BAAS, BSGS, BSAS, BAT, BAS). If a minor is desired, it must be declared on the degree plan. Students may declare no more than two minors.

Tarleton State University offers the following minors. Up to two minors may be declared in most baccalaureate degree programs. The first list of minors are those requiring a minimum of 18 hours within the minor discipline, of which 6 hours must consist of upper level coursework completed at Tarleton State University.
