  • Grade Requirements: A grade of “C” or better in each course used toward the minor (a grade of “C-” is not acceptable).
  • Credit Hour Requirements: A minimum of 18 credit hours in addition to two years of college study (or the equivalent) of a European language. Courses taken which are part of the student’s major will not count as fulfillment of the minor requirement. Of the total 18 credit hours, only six may be taken in the same department.
