Minors at Mason

Thinking about adding a minor? With careful planning, most students have room for a minor. A minor can help to fulfill a student’s secondary interest, enhance a student’s major or help with career preparation.

Policies that apply to all minors:

  • Minors require between 15 and 21 credits of study.
  • At least 8 credits of the minor must be applied only to that minor and may not be used to fulfill requirements of the student’s major, concentration, an undergraduate certificate, or another minor.
  • Students must have a minimum GPA of 2.00 in the coursework applied to a minor.
  • At least 6 credits of the minor must be completed at Mason.
