Minors & Concentrations
The College of Liberal Arts offers students two options for completion of their upper-level liberal
arts requirements. Students may choose to complete either a liberal arts concentration or a liberal arts
minor. It is important to note that the lower-level liberal arts requirements (the core requirements)
remain the same regardless of whether a student elects to complete a concentration or a minor.
A liberal arts concentration is a cohesive set of three upper-level courses (12 credits) approved by the faculty for use
in meeting RIT's general education requirements. Concentrations may be disciplinary or interdisciplinary, and some may require
prerequisite course work.
