Any student may receive the minor so long as he or she applies and is admitted to the minor, fulfills all units of required coursework, follows the minor policies and completes relevant forms in a timely manner. Students are encouraged to enroll in classes early as space is limited. There is a possibility that you will not be able to meet the course requirements due to popularity and space availability.
