College of Arts & Sciences

Academic Minors

Degree requirements for all undergraduate majors and minors offered within the College of Arts and Sciences are listed in the current UNCW undergraduate catalogue, page 125 or in the online university catalogue.

For your convenience, interdisciplinary academic minors within the college are listed below with links to the e-mail address of the faculty coordinators. Students may wish to contact the coordinator for additional information on interdepartmental/interdisciplinary academic minors. 

The college posts the most recently available information on the coordinator of an interdisciplinary minor and his/her department. This information may, in some cases be, more recent than the information in the printed catalogue, which is published in the spring preceding each academic year.

Information on academic minors within the disciplines may also be available on the websites of the departments sponsoring these programs (departments and programs).
