A minor is a course of study that allows undergraduates a second field of specialization. Minors are intended to encourage and officially acknowledge students' attainment of knowledge in more than one academic field, with the goal of broadening their education.
A minor requires 18-21 credits in a particular field different from the students' major. Because many majors are interdisciplinary at John Jay College, some overlap may occur between courses appearing in a major and a minor but this should be kept to a minimum.
A student who wishes to pursue a minor should consult the minor advisor or chairperson of the appropriate department or program as early as possible.
