Once you choose your major, you can complement or enhance your degree with one of 40+ uLethbridge minors from "Aboriginal Health" to "Women and Gender Studies". Minors are accessible to any student in an undergraduate program except combined degrees with Education, Education After Degree programs, or where the minor is directly related to the student’s major.
A minor is a defined set of six courses, designed to provide depth in a particular discipline, study in an interdisciplinary area, or focus on a theme-related topic. Students may wish to consider declaring a minor for a variety of reasons: to enhance depth of knowledge in a diverse area, to gain exposure to a range of perspectives, to build a foundation for an intended career, to pursue multiple passions, or to broaden talents.
The minors directly related to business are listed below. For detailed requirements please see the Minors section of the University of Lethbridge Academic Calendar. To find the right path for you, you can speak with one of our academic advisors to help guide your decision.
