How Many Minors Can You Have?
Minors can only be added to bachelor’s degrees and may be used to plan out general electives in your degree plan to meet specific goals. You can pursue as many minors as you want, but more than one minor will likely add to the overall length of your degree plan beyond the normal 120 credit hour, three-year time frame.
