Minoring at Mville
Minoring at Mville Overview
While not required for graduation, a minor field of study can be a very valuable part of a student's academic program at Manhattanville. A minor typically requires 5 - 7 courses in a particular field (about half of what the major requires), and minors are available throughout many programs in the School of Arts and Sciences.
There are several advantages to completing an optional minor in addition to the required
major. Here are some of them:
- A minor can serve to support a major, providing depth of knowledge in a related area, thus making the student more attractive in terms of graduate school and more marketable with employers.
- A minor can serve to diversify students’ programs, by giving them a depth of knowledge in a field beyond their major. This opens up options, and helps prepare students for diverse careers. In today’s world, where people tend to change jobs and progress through multiple careers, in-depth knowledge in only one area is an increasing liability.
Minors can be declared at any time, but are usually declared during the second semester of the sophomore year. If you are interested in pursuing a minor, we encourage you to contact the Academic Advising team and/or a faculty member for the program.
