How Many Minors Can You Have? 

Minors can only be added to bachelor’s degrees and may be used to fill in general electives in your degree plan. 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 format. Speak with an academic advisor about adding a minor once you begin your online bachelor’s degree.
