A minor is defined as a course of study of at least 18 semester hours outside the student’s major. Academic minors may be earned in disciplines as specified by the department faculty. Requirements are a grade point average of 2.0 or higher for 18 or more semester hours.

Courses for the minor may also meet general education or major requirements, and at least 9 of the required hours must be earned in Columbia College coursework. (Transfer courses equivalent to courses designated are accepted toward the minor.)

Majors and minors may not be added to an already earned degree.

In some curricular areas, the College offers courses totaling fewer than 18 semester hours. In these areas, students may earn additional semester hours through transfer credit so the total semester hours earned meets the required number of hours (see Evaluation of Credit and Testing ). Main Campus Day students can participate in cooperative cross-enrollment with the University of Missouri - Columbia and/or Stephens College (see Advising and Registration ).

Specific Requirements

Complete 18 hours of ENVS courses at the 100 level and above including at least 8 hours of 300- or 400-level coursework. BIOL 395W /ENVS 395W  and BIOL 490 /ENVS 490  do not count toward the 8 hours of upper level credit.

Total Semester Hours: 18
