Students may elect to declare up to a maximum of two (optional) minors within a single undergraduate-level certificate or Bachelors degree program, either at the time of application or added at any point during one's studies prior to graduation.
Minors are defined as a set of 6 distinct courses (18.0 credits), per minor, which are to be completed on-top of the student's base coursework in their primary program and ultimately aim to provide learners with a fundamental depth of knowledge in a particular sub-discipline (which do not necessarily have to be related to one's major or program faculty). Upon the successful completion of all calendar-mandated course requirements, the student's chosen minor(s) will be denoted on their official uLethbridge transcript.
While there are 47 possible undergraduate minors to select from with uLethbridge, the Calgary Campus however can only guarantee completion for the following 6 at this time, due to our small size:
- Health Leadership - Cannot be declared by Calgary-based BHSc-PUBH students due to the significant amount of duplication/overlap in curricula between minor and degree
- International Management - Will entail completion of at least one, full-term/4-month outbound international exchange
- Mental Health - Cannot be declared by Calgary-based BHSc-PUBH students due a significant amount of the minor's associated courses being normally delivered in-person at the Lethbridge Campus
- Population Health - Cannot be declared by Calgary-based BHSc-PUBH students due to the significant amount of duplication/overlap in curricula between minor and degree
Consult the current undergraduate Academic Calendar ("Minors" section) to determine which exact courses are to be completed in order to satisfy the curriculum requirements for specific minors. Minor course requirements can be subject to change with every new calendar year. uLethbridge's 41 other declarable undergraduate minors, as listed in the Calendar, are exclusive to the Lethbridge Campus, at this time
*IMPORTANT: No undergraduate minor can be fully completed in one single semester as not all associated courses are offered every term. In addition, many minors will entail courses with pre-requisite conditions, which means that said courses will need to be be completed in a certain sequential order due to their progressive knowledge-building/laddering structures.
