Obtaining a minor is a great way to customize your undergraduate experience and achieve a broad understanding of a subject that interests you. Less rigorous than a major program, minors usually require 18-30 credit hours, and our campus has more than 100 to choose from.
The Department of ACE has three options for minors that complement the concentration areas students can pursue:
To declare one of the three minors or to learn more, please contact ACE advisor Lauren Karplus. You can also schedule an appointment with Lauren here Meet with Lauren. Be sure to select her name. Note that a minor advising appointment is required by our department before we will add the minor to your record.
The Sustainability, Energy, and Environmental Fellows Program is a campus wide undergarduate minor that promotes systems-level thinking about energy and sustainability. This minor is offered in partnership with six academic units - one of which is the Department of Agricultural and Consumer Economics (ACE).
