Electives and minors

Looking for an elective course to round out your studies? Have an interest in an area outside of your degree studies? Check out the elective course offerings and minors/thematic areas of study.

Minors

Minors consist of at least 24 units of course work (normally with no more than six units from Level I). Specific course requirements for minors are set out in the program description in the Undergraduate Calendar.

Minors are available if you are enrolled in four- or five-level programs (exception: Medical Radiation Sciences).

Interested? Check your program information in the Faculty section of the Undergraduate Calendar for any subject area exclusions.

Thematic Areas

Thematic Areas are designed to assist you in choosing courses in areas of study, where Bachelor of Arts (BA) programs do not currently exist.
