Academic Minors

Choose from a Variety of Academic Majors and Minors.

A minor is a course sequence within an area of study providing a degree of specialization within that area, a specialty within a discipline, or a specialty integrating several disciplines. Minors will contain a balance of introductory and advanced coursework. Minors are designed to be completed within the same time frame allowed for completion of the baccalaureate or associate degree. After matriculating in a program, students wishing to obtain a minor shall contact the coordinator of the minor to initiate the process.

Nine credits of minor coursework must be at the upper-division level. A minimum of 12 credit hours of a minor must be completed in courses offered at SUNY Canton. At least 9 credit hours must not be required courses in the student’s major program. Students in a minor program must achieve a minimum GPA of 2.00 for all courses being applied in satisfaction of the minor. Students may declare more than one minor, but the same course may not be applied to more than one of the minors.

It is strongly recommended that students consult with a Financial Aid and/or Student Accounts Counselor before enrolling in a minor.
