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.

GLOBAL OPPORTUNITIES 

Worldly experiences continue to expand at Drexel with opportunities for both international students looking for programming and support here at Drexel and domestic students interested in gaining experience abroad. Many international partnerships and dual degree programs, as well as funding for international travel and global events on-campus, are offered through the Office of Global Engagement and Education Abroad. In fact, nursing PhD student and GSA president, Jerry John Nutor, took advantage of one such opportunity this past summer in Zambia through the Dornsife Global Development Scholars Program.

PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT 

Following our recent, university-wide survey of graduate students, faculty and professional staff regarding development priorities for graduate students across the University we launched an initiative to develop new or enriched professional development programming.

An enhanced Teaching Assistant Orientation and Course will start this September with a focus on teaching techniques and interactive learning environments for new TAs. Open to all graduate students, the newly created Coffee Hour Seminar Series will expand upon the TA course activities and will include in-demand topics such as preparing for conference presentations, teaching online, and career talks for jobs in academia, industry, government and the non-profit sector. In collaboration with the GSA, we will continue to host frequent Books and Bagels: Conversations in Interdisciplinary Research programs, which provide students with the opportunity to learn about the impressive research of their peers or to present their own research in a conversational and interdisciplinary setting.

ADDITIONAL RESOURCES 

The Graduate College continues to cover the cost of health insurance for eligible doctoral students, and based on student feedback this student health insurance now includes optional dependent coverage, as well as dental and vision plans. In collaboration with the GSA we also continue to offer funding to present your research at prestigious conferences across the country through our highly sought-after conference travel awards. Please visit the resource pages of our website for further information on these and other opportunities.

I encourage you to make the most of the many valuable opportunities throughout your experience here. Your faculty, colleagues and classmates come from all over the world and bring a wealth of knowledge to our more than 230 diverse graduate programs. The GSA and more than 30 graduate student organizations provide academic, networking and community programs. And the vibrant city of Philadelphia enables countless cultural and career experiences. Many of our more than 9,000 graduate students credit this unique environment with strengthening their academic, professional and personal goals.

Please accept my warmest welcome and best wishes for a successful academic year. Feel free to reach out to me or anyone on my team in the Graduate College with any questions or concerns. In the meantime, I hope to see you on campus or in the Graduate College soon for a cup of coffee or tea.

Sincerely,

James D. Herbert, Ph.D.

Dean, Graduate College
