Minors, Extended Learning

Seven minors are offered through Extended Learning. Students enrolled in the bachelor degree program of professional and applied studies are required to select a minor.

Applied Supervision

Designed to be practical and applications-oriented, this minor addresses the theories and practice of human relations and supervision, the legal aspects of supervision, supervising staff, leadership skills, organizational psychology, and planning and organizing.

Applied Technology Supervision

The applied technology supervision minor may be taken by students with a background in technology who want to advance their knowledge of solving practical industrial problems.

Criminal Justice

The criminal justice minor can be taken in addition to a degree program by those who desire an understanding of the criminal justice system.


The English minor may be taken by students who want a background with a broader cultural perspective. It may be useful to those who decide to attend graduate school as the beginning foundation to many careers.

Gender And Women's Studies

The purpose of this minor is to facilitate exploration of the rapidly expanding interdisciplinary scholarship in gender and women’s studies. Students’ abilities to articulate what they have learned about interdisciplinary scholarship as it pertains to the intersection of gender, race, ethnicity, sexuality, and class will enhance their potential for professional success.


The psychology minor may be taken by students who desire a better understanding of human behavior.


The sociology minor may be taken by students who desire a better understanding of society, human behavior, and social interactions.

Minors allow students to either broaden their knowledge within an undergraduate degree, or specialize in a subject area that can provide a platform for future personal  or professional development. For example, adding a well-chosen minor to your degree is one way to demonstrate critical thinking and problem solving skills to a potential employer.
Ask your advisor about the value of choosing any of the minors above to supplement or otherwise customize your degree.
