Section 3: Minors

140. Academic Minors at UCSB (Am 1 Jun 00)

  1. In addition to the major, a student may pursue an academic minor. Formal minor programs may be offered by an individual department or program, or by a multidisciplinary group of departments and/or programs. Each minor program must be approved by the Executive Committee of the college or school that will offer the minor. If a minor program is to be offered jointly by more than one school or college, it must be approved by each of the Executive Committees of those schools or colleges.
  2. At a minimum, a minor must include 18 units of upper division course work. All of these units must be completed with a grade-point average of 2.0 or better; at least 12 of them must be completed in residence at UCSB; no more than 5 may count toward both the minor and the upper division requirement of the major; and no more than 5 may be taken on a P/NP grading basis.
  3. A college or school Executive Committee may decide whether or not students may earn credit toward that college's or school's graduation requirements by pursuing a certain minor program offered by another college or school.
  4. Minor Programs will be included in the regularly scheduled reviews of departments and programs that offer them.
