Unity College minors are designed to allow flexibility within a student’s learning goals. Students can specialize in a topic that interests them and also demonstrates a range of interests to future employers. Currently, the college has six available minors that help students become marketable as well as gaining a well-rounded education of an environmentally focused liberal arts degree. Because many relevant courses can apply to both major and minor requirements, a minor can be added without changing a degree plan.
Courses can be applied to a minor even if there is no formal declaration. All minor requirements must be completed prior to graduation. Unity College reserves the right to modify the minors in order to provide the best academic course offerings.
The current minors available for students are:
- Applied Mathematics and Statistics (pdf)
- Botany (pdf)
- Ecology (pdf)
- Environmental Interpretation and Education (pdf)
- Psychology (pdf)
- Zoology (pdf)
An academic minor is a specified sequence of courses totaling 18 to 24 credits and requiring at least nine credits of 3000 or 4000 level work. Twelve of the credits must be outside of the major degree requirements and other minor requirements. Students are limited to declaring one minor in addition to their major(s). Minors do not lead to a degree. No substitution or waiver of courses in a minor is allowed. The college does not guarantee courses for a minor. However, some students find that a minor can complement their major, or alternatively, allow them to explore an unrelated area of interest.
