What is the significance of a minor?

A minor concentration requires that approximately 15 credit hours of specified coursework be completed in a discipline other than the chosen major and that a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.00 be attained. Therefore, the completion of a minor indicates that the student has made a significant academic investment either to complement or supplement their major.
