Minor, Interdisciplinary Studies

Minimum Requirements for Minor: 18 credits

  1. Contact the Academic Advising Center at 907-474-6396 or 888-823-8780 for materials and procedures.
  2. Prepare and submit a draft declaration of interdisciplinary minor form and submit it electronically to the Academic Advising Center at www.uaf.edu/advising/ or in person at 510 Gruening Building. Include a title for the minor, briefly describe the body of knowledge and skills intended to fulfill the minor, including courses specifying the knowledge and skills relevant to the minor title. For example: Food Science minor, including relevant course work from transfer credits in Food Science from a regionally accredited university, as well as credits from chemistry, fisheries or natural resources management, and biological sciences. An interdisciplinary minor cannot be titled the same as an existing minor and must demonstrate a cohesive body of knowledge skills. The approved title will appear on the student’s transcript.
  3. Three faculty members approved by the dean of General Studies will serve as the interdisciplinary minor committee. This committee will ensure that an appropriate and cohesive body of knowledge and skills is addressed in the planned minor and that the interdisciplinary minor does not overlap with an existing minor, and will discuss alternatives with the student as needed.
