A minor is a set of courses taken in a specific area outside your major. Minors are a great way to complement your major or pursue another area of interest.

Current Minors Catalog: The requirements for each minor currently offered at WVU are listed here.


  1. You cannot officially declare a minor until you are accepted into your major; however, a student can begin the courses required for a minor at any time.
  2. Two courses required for the minor can also be used to satisfy GEC objectives for your major.
  3. You cannot complete a minor offered by your department (i.e.: students in the College of Business and Economics cannot complete a Business Administration minor)

Ask you advisor for more information about choosing a minor.
