UTSA offers formal minors in a variety of disciplines and in several interdisciplinary fields. To receive a minor, students must complete at least 18 semester credit hours, including 6 hours at the upper-division level at UTSA, and must achieve a grade point average of at least 2.0 (on a 4.0 scale) on all work used to satisfy the requirements of a minor. Additional semester credit hours in the minor sequence may be required under individual UTSA degree plans. Students who declare minors must graduate under a catalog that includes minors and must meet any additional requirements listed in that catalog. All requirements for the minor must be met at graduation; a minor cannot be added to a student’s degree program once he or she graduates. Declaration of a minor is voluntary. To declare a minor, a student must file a Change of Major or Degree Information form through the student’s assigned advisor. Students may not formally minor in more than two fields. Descriptions of minor requirements are included in chapters 3–11 of this catalog.
