To complement a major, students may choose a minor (minimum of 18 semester
hours) in one of the below areas. Wingate does not require minors. Minors should be in
a different academic discipline than the baccalaureate major.
The following policies apply:
• No more than two courses counted for a major may also be counted for a minor
(except a biology/chemistry, a finance/accounting, or a finance/economics
• No more than two courses counted for a minor can count toward another minor.
• Students who wish to pursue a minor should notify the Office of Academic
Advising of this intent. The minor will not appear on the student’s transcript
unless this declaration is made.
• A student who is following the requirements for a major outlined in an earlier
catalog may choose a minor from a later catalog. The reverse does not apply. This
policy is only applicable in choosing a minor; not a second major.
