Social and Behavioral Sciences Minor

Students need complete 15 hours (6 UD) in at least two but no more than three fields of study. The fields of study are based on the COLA Social Science list. Please refer to the “Additional Social Science (Liberal Arts)” section on page two for a list of courses. The “SB- Social and Behavioral Sciences (CORE 80)” on the first page does list some of the courses available for students to take, but it includes non-liberal arts courses which does not count towards the minor. The list on page two includes the liberal arts courses from first list and additional liberal arts courses available for students to take.

Petition requests for courses to count towards the minor that are currently not listed in the “Additional Social Science (Liberal Arts)” section on page two of COLA Social Science list will not be accepted. 

 How to Apply

Students can apply through the minor and certificate inventory system. The SBS minor is listed under the Liberal Arts section.
