University Minor

Customize your minor to your goals

Students with well-defined goals and interests which are not met within the current offerings of minors are encouraged to consider a university minor. As with the university major, you university minor must have a clearly defined unifying principle. This principle must be either a special focus (e.g., consumer affairs) not provided in an existing major or a special interest that crosses disciplinary lines (e.g., American studies).

You must successfully complete a minimum of 50 percent of the credit hours required for the minorat Fontbonne.

You must complete 18 credit hours in your chosen discipline when pursuing a university minor. A minimum of 9 credit hours must be completed at the upper division level and must represent more than one discipline.

If you are interested in pursuing a university minor, you must construct a proposal of study with the assistance and approval of your major advisor, and present the proposal of study for review. After discussing your proposal with you, the director will submit the proposal to the chair of the undergraduate academic committee. Your proposal must include the name of the minor, goals and objectives, specific courses (those completed and those to be completed) for the minor, and a timeline for completion.

  1. Submit the proposal of study prior to the completion of 94 credit hours (this total may represent Fontbonne coursework, transfer coursework, or a combination of both).
  2. Receive approval from the undergraduate academic committee for the university minor.
  3. File the approved program of study with the major advisor and with the registrar’s office.

You will be awarded a degree upon the successful completion of the university minor and all degree and graduation requirements.
