– For the first time in its history, Florida Tech will offer minors, effective immediately. The university curriculum committee recently approved seven
minors: psychology, forensic psychology, business administration, management, accounting, management information systems and communication.
“Minors are typical in liberal arts universities. The thinking here has been that our curriculum is already quite rigorous and the extra work required for
a minor could add more time to a student’s stay. But, it’s purely optional and we hope that students will appreciate the availability of a minor in a field
useful or interesting to them,” said Charlotte Young, university registrar.
The minor information will be in print in the 2005-2006 course catalog. Students may immediately select a minor to work toward and can obtain additional
information from the departments offering the minors.
The minors require 18 to 21 credit hours of selected course work. The intent of the minor is to encourage and recognize focused study in a field outside of
the student’s major.
