Majors and Minors
What is my program?
A program is a specific set of course requirements leading to the completion of admission requirements, degree, diploma, or certificate either at the University of Lethbridge or at an institution with which the University has formal transfer arrangements. Generally your program is the degree(s) that you are working towards, such as the Bachelor of Arts (BA) or Bachelor of Science/Bachelor of Education (BSc/BEd).
What is my major?
A major is the main area of specialization within the broader program requirements. For example, a student in the BA program can choose a major from the Humanities or Social Sciences. His or her program could be a Bachelor of Arts, majoring in Anthropology, or a Bachelor of Arts, majoring in Psychology.
What is my minor?
A minor is a secondary area of focus. Depending on your program faculty, students must complete 4-6 courses in a secondary area to attain a minor. A minor can enhance your resume and complement your major, while allowing student to pursue a second passion. Completed minors will be recognized on your university transcript.
A minor may be required or optional depending on your major. Some minors are not available in all programs.
