2021-2022 Course Catalog
Undergraduate Minors and Certificates
Such a minor consists of a minimum of five courses as designated by the program or department. No more than two courses may be double counted toward a minor and a major. Courses in the minor may also be counted toward the General Education depth requirement. Internships and independent studies may be a part of the requirements. There are no capstone requirements for the minor. At least 50% of the credits toward the program minor must be taken at Chatham and a grade of C- or higher must be earned in all minor courses completed after spring. A student must earn a G.P.A. of 2.0 or above within the minor. Available program minors are listed below.
The self-designed minor consists of a minimum of five courses in an area of study for which a program minor does not exist. The student prepares a proposal for the minor that includes a title, a statement of the educational goals, identification of learning outcomes and a list of courses that will be included in the minor. Internships and independent studies may be included in the requirements for the minor. The self-designed minor proposal must be submitted to and approved by a full-time faculty member in the discipline most closely related to the proposed minor and at least one department chair. Responsibility for the monitoring of the minor rests with this faculty member; a copy of the approved course list must be submitted to the Registrar’s Office at the time of the student’s graduation audit. No more than two courses may be double counted toward a self-designed minor and a major. Courses in the minor may also be counted toward the General Education depth requirement. At least 50% of the credits toward the self-designed minor must be taken at Chatham and a grade of C- or higher must be earned in all minor courses.
Available certificates may be added to any undergraduate major. Courses in certificates may also be counted toward the General Education depth requirement and also toward any major or minor. Available undergraduate certificates are listed below. Graduate-level certificates are listed with the graduate program pages.
