Minors Available to Undergraduate Students

Students in the College of Health and Human Sciences may pursue a wide variety of minors. The length of time it takes to complete these minors is dependent upon the student’s major and the particular minor. Some majors accommodate minors within the regular four-year plan of study. Other combinations require the student to extend their studies beyond four years.

HHS students interested in pursuing a minor are encouraged to make an appointment to see their academic advisor to discuss the requirements for the minor and how the courses fit within their plan of study.

Minors from the following HHS units and schools, with the exception of HTM International Studies, are available to all majors at the West Lafayette Campus.
