University of Calgary Calendar 2011-2012 Faculty of Arts 3. Faculty Regulations 3.4 Graduation 3.4.4 Minor Fields
3.4.4 Minor Fields

Students may formally declare a Minor and have this officially recorded on their transcript of record. To obtain a Minor, students must complete at least five full-course equivalents from the Minor Field and any requirements specified for the particular Minor. Students are normally not permitted to count more than 6.0 full-course equivalents from their Minor fields in their degrees. See the sub-section on 3.2.14 Unauthorized Concentrations.

Students in the Faculty of Arts may be eligible to declare Minor Fields from Continuing Education, the Haskayne School of Business, the Faculty of Medicine and the Faculty of Science as well as the Faculty of Arts. Students should consult the Calendar regulations for the Faculties within which they intend to declare a Minor. For Minors from the Faculty of Arts, see the section on 4. Program Details.

At least one Minor Field of study must be formally declared in conjunction with the Multidisciplinary Degree Programs. Some restrictions apply to the pairing of majors and minors as discussed under 4. Program Details. Students are advised that course work in addition to the normal 20 full-course equivalents may sometimes be required if a formal Minor program is declared.

The declaration of a Minor must be made not later than the time of last registration. To receive further information, contact an Arts Degree Specialist in the Student Success Centre.

Note: In accordance with other parts of this Calendar, students pursuing degrees from other Faculties may or may not be eligible to declare Minors from the Faculty of Arts at the discretion of their home Faculty.
