A student in an engineering program may undertake a minor in Arts:
- An acceptable minor program must comprise courses in the Faculty of Arts that are for credit toward a B.A. degree and must consist of 18 upper-level credits in a single subject or field of specialization.
- Students should design a coherent and academically sound course of studies for the proposed minor.
- The program must be approved by an advisor in Engineering Academic Services on the recommendation of an advisor from the appropriate department or program office within the Faculty of Arts.
- All courses must be acceptable for a B.A. major in the proposed subject area or field, although the student is not bound by other requirements of the Faculty of Arts.
A minor in Mathematics, Computer Systems, Cognitive Systems, or where there is significant overlap between the student's engineering program and the proposed subject or field for the minor is not permitted. A dual degree and a minor in Arts cannot be combined, although a student may pursue a minor within the B.A. degree.
Upon successful completion of the minor program, the notation "Minor in Arts" will be added to the student's transcript.
Students wanting a subject-specific minor may also undertake a minor in a specific Arts discipline's minor program, which requires the completion of at least 30 credits in a single subject field of specialization, of which at least 18 credits must be numbered 300 or higher.
