Minor in Arts

A student in the Bachelor of Environmental Design may undertake a Minor in Arts as noted below:

  • 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 a minimum of 18 upper-level credits [300-400 level] in a single subject or field of specialization.
  • Students should design a coherent and academically sound course of studies for the proposed minor.
  • The proposed course of studies for the Minor in Arts must be approved by the Chair of Environmental Design or their designate.

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 undertake a minor in a specific Arts discipline’s major or minor program, which requires the completion of at least 30 credits in a single subject or field of specialization, of which at least 18 credits must be numbered 300 or higher. The proposed course of studies must be approved by the Chair of Environmental Design or their designate following approval from an advisor from the appropriate unit within the Faculty of Arts.

Upon successful completion of the 30 credit subject specific minor program, the subject specific minor or field of specialization will be added to the student’s transcript by including the notation 'Minor in [Subject]’.
