Minors require 15-18 hours of selected coursework in a specific field of study. The minor designation appears on a student’s transcript but not their diploma, and once declared, becomes part of the student's graduation requirements. Students can choose up to two minors, but they must be declared before the graduating semester.
Almost 100 minors are offered through the various colleges at Texas A&M University. A complete list of available minors (85K PDF) can be downloaded from the Office of the Registrar website.
The Department of Architecture offers a minor in Art & Architectural History, Sustainable Architecture and Planning, Architectural Fabrication and Product Design and Architectural Heritage Conservation. Students must receive signed approval from the department academic advisor. Application is then made in the student's home college or major department.
