What is a minor?
While every CMU-Q student will have a major area of study, many also choose to pursue a minor area of study too. For some students, they find they are very interested in a second subject and they would like to learn more about it. For others, a minor is a subject that complements their major area of study.

Student defined majors and minors are special programs that have been specifically designed and have been approved by the Associate Vice Provost’s Office to give students additional opportunities in subject areas not currently offered by our academic departments. Some minors are offered in conjunction with other Education City universities and courses will be offered through the Cross-Registration program.
