Do I have to complete a Minor?
Bachelor or Arts students must complete a Minor as part of their degree requirements. It consists of 24 credit hrs (or 8 half-year courses) with no more than 6 hrs at the 1000 level.
What is a Minor?
A Minor can be 24 hours in a single discipline (i.e. 24 hrs PSYC, 24 hours HIST, 24 hours ENGL, etc.) or we also have Multidisciplinary Minors (MDM). MDM are minors that have to do with a specific topic or area but you take courses in multiple disciplines. Minors are often chosen based on potential career paths or purely based on interest. If you're interested in Secondary Education (middle school/high school), you will want to minor in a discipline that is a 2nd teachable.
Multidisciplinary Minors offer an alternative to completing the minor requirements for a BA in a single discipline. Students interested in studying a topic from a variety of disciplinary perspectives should consult the list of Multidisciplinary Minors available through Acadia's Faculty of Arts in the column to the left for full details and complete course lists. These include American Studies, Atlantic Canadian Studies, Canadian Studies, Comparative Religion, Cultural Studies, Diaspora Studies, International Development Studies, Environmental Studies, Legal Studies, Material & Visual Culture, Women’s & Gender Studies, and World Literatures.
Crosslisted courses are courses in other disciplines that count as Sociology credit.
