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, procedures and to make an appointment with the interdisciplinary advisor. 
  2. After meeting with the interdisciplinary minor advisor, electronically submit a written proposal describing your interdisciplinary minor to the Academic Advising Center at uaf-advising@alaska.edu or in person at 510 Gruening Building. The proposal should include your name, student ID number, the date, a title for the minor, a description of the body of knowledge and skills relating to the minor’s theme, and a list of courses included in the minor. A brief description of how each course specifically relates to the minor’s theme should also be included. 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.
