Why should I pursue a minor?

An academic minor or specialized program allows you to broaden your experience at Michigan by pursuing in-depth courses in an area of your interest. The University of Michigan offers more than 85 minors and specialized programs, including minors designed and offered specifically for Michigan Engineering students, as well as programs in these schools and colleges:

  • Art & Design
  • Business
  • Social Work
  • Literature, Science & the Arts

Completing a minor is optional for College of Engineering students; you may also complete multiple minors or certificate programs if you like. A minor is a great way to broaden your experience at Michigan, build valuable skills, and have the minor or program recognized on your transcript when you graduate.
