Options vs Minors http://depts.washington.edu/registra/curriculum/FCASpolicies.php#OptionsvsMinors http://depts.washington.edu/registra/curriculum/FCASpolicies.php#OptionsvsMinors Students can not get a minor in their major. An option is a formally approved pathway for students to focus their study within the major and have it listed on their transcript. Options may have their own major codes – but this will affect reporting. Students can have a degree, major, an option, and separate minor (s).
Rules for Minors http://depts.washington.edu/registra/curriculum/FCASpolicies.php#Minors http://depts.washington.edu/registra/curriculum/FCASpolicies.php#Minors Unit/Departmental Minors 25-35 credits A minimum of 50% or 15 credits, whichever is greater, of 300/400 level courses. A student cannot receive a minor in their major. * (see Interdisciplinary Minors) A minimum of 50% or 15 credits, whichever is greater, must be completed in residence at the UW campus granting the minor. Minors may request a minimum cumulative 2.0 GPA for courses applied to the minor; higher grade and GPA requirements are subject to additional review. Courses taken Satisfactory/Not Satisfactory will not be counted toward a minor. Students must declare a major and have completed a minimum of 45 credits before declaring a minor. Students must have the major advisor sign off on minor declaration paperwork in order to ensure that students meet university satisfactory progress requirements.
Interdisciplinary Minors http://depts.washington.edu/registra/curriculum/FCASpolicies.php#interdisMinors http://depts.washington.edu/registra/curriculum/FCASpolicies.php#interdisMinors Interdisciplinary minors are minors that are composed of courses and content that come from more than one area of study. The first four interdisciplinary minors offered by the University are in Marine Biology; Education, Learning, and Society; Quantitative Science; and Values and Society.Marine BiologyEducation, Learning, and SocietyQuantitative ScienceValues and Society Interdisciplinary minors were created because students are not allowed to minor in their major, but at times the content overlap between the major and an Interdisciplinary minor is unavoidable. To ensure that students are satisfying the intention of the rule disallowing a student to minor in their major, FCAS created the following policy. Interdisciplinary minors must require that 60% of the coursework applied to the minor is take outside of the student's major requirements. This means these classes may not apply both to the satisfying major requirements and interdisciplinary minor requirements. Note: These credits can count towards the 180 credits required for graduation. The minor should require some type of Capstone/Colloquium/Seminar/Cumulating experience.
