CLAS Minors and Certificate Programs

The information in the links below is provided to allow you to see the variety of minors that are available and to get a first look at the requirements for each minor. The plans are not sufficient, in themselves, to guide your work in any minor. You should always seek further guidance from a faculty member in the department offering the minor. Professional advisors in the CLAS Academic Advising Office are available to discuss your minor options and to review the minor requirements with you.

The requirements for a minor are tied to your catalog year (the academic year you started at GVSU). Please make sure that when you are viewing requirements they are those for your particular catalog year.
