The Arts Department offers minor programs in selected areas. Each minor requires 16 credit hours of designated courses. Students may use minor courses towards the Institute's Humanities and Social Science core or free electives. Courses that are used to fulfill major requirements may not be used towards obtaining a minor as well.
Students have the option to participate in certain ensembles as club members through the Student Union. Club membership or participation in these ensembles alone will not count towards the earned academic credits for the minor. Please visit the Rensselaer Music Association website for more information.
