Undergraduate Minors

Minor

A minor is an optional secondary area of study that complements the student's major or explores another area of intellectual interest. A minor must be in an area of study different from the student's major and may be from an interdisciplinary area of study.

The University's minors can be viewed at http://www.webster.edu/catalog/current/undergraduate-catalog/minors/.

Requirements for Minors

  • Students must complete a minimum of 18 credit hours in specified coursework in residence at Webster University.
  • Transfer credits may not be applied to a minor.
  • Students must earn a grade of C- or better in courses applied to the minor. Some departments may establish a higher cumulative grade requirement for specific minors.
  • Students may earn a maximum of two minors.
  • Courses fulfilling the requirements for a minor may not be applied to the requirements for the student's major or another minor.

A minor cannot be earned as a stand-alone credential but is earned simultaneously with a bachelor's degree. A minor appears on the student's transcript.
