MINOR OVERVIEW

 Besides enrolling in a major, students are encouraged to consider one of the many minors of study that are available at Hawai‘i Pacific University. A minor program of study encompasses completion of selected courses that are fewer in number and less comprehensive than a major. At least 12 credit hours in the minor field must be taken in addition to coursework in the major. All students must complete a minimum of six credits of minor coursework in residence with HPU in order to be awarded a minor. Although the minor is not listed on the diploma, it is listed on the transcript, provided that the student has completed all necessary coursework and the degree has been conferred. Minors must be identified prior to degree conferral. Students may not add minor courses of study to degree programs that have already been completed and conferred on the original transcript.
