Browse Minors

A minor is a set of five or more academic courses that offers a secondary area of expertise to complement your major and enhance your career prospects. RIT offers minors in the subjects listed below and regularly adds more to fit student interests.
 
Completion of a minor results in a formal designation on a student’s academic transcript upon graduation from RIT. This provides an official indication that the student has completed the requirements for the minor and serves to highlight this accomplishment to graduate schools, employers and others. Students may pursue more than one minor if they have a sufficient number of elective courses available within their degree program, or if they choose to graduate with additional credits.
