Transcript Recognized Minor

The Department of Rhetoric and Writing offers a transcript-recognized undergraduate academic minor (TRM) to be completed in conjunction with an undergraduate degree at UT Austin. The requirements listed below are for students following the 2016-2018 and future undergraduate catalogs. Students following earlier catalogs should consult with their academic advisor on requirements for completing a minor in Rhetoric and Writing.

To be eligible for the transcript-recognized minor, students must complete a minimum of 15 hours of coursework, but not more than 18 hours, and none of the specified coursework for the minor can include unnumbered topics. At least 50% of the coursework required for the minor must be completed in residence at UT Austin.
