Graduate Minors

Policy Statement

The Faculty Senate of Drexel University authorizes the offering of minor programs at the graduate level (graduate minors), subject to the following guidelines:

A graduate minor is a set of interrelated graduate courses outside of a student’s major graduate program that provides additional professional expertise. The disciplinary area of the minor may be fully outside the major program or may be related to, but not completely overlapping, the major program. The completion of a minor is represented on the transcript along with a major program as a demonstration of additional professional expertise acquired. Entry into a minor is generally limited to those who have demonstrated the required prerequisite knowledge for the coursework.

A graduate minor shall comprise at least four quarter term (or three semester term) courses and at least twelve quarter (or nine semester) credit hours of coursework. No more than two required quarter term courses (or one semester term course) from a student’s major graduate program may be used to fulfill the requirements for the minor. The remaining credits to fulfill the minor requirements may be taken as electives within the major program or in addition to courses required for the major program. A student is limited to enrollment in one minor.

A graduate student seeking a masters or doctoral degree may enroll in a minor with the approval of his/her major program graduate academic advisor and the approval of the respective minor program academic advisor (listed below). It is highly recommended that enrollment occur early in the student’s tenure in the major program so that his/her program of study can be optimally planned.
