Minors, Extended Learning

Seven minors are offered through Extended Learning. Students enrolled in the bachelor degree program of professional 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.

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 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.
