Students may add cross-disciplinary knowledge to their major program of study by completing a minor in another area. A Faculty of Art minor is a series of courses comprising 5.0 full credits in a single field of study (disciplinary minor).
Courses required for a student’s major may not be used to fulfill requirements for a minor. Faculty of Art students may use up to 2.0 credits of their Faculty of Art electives and up to 3.0 credits of Faculty of Liberal Studies distribution credits toward a minor. Faculty of Design students may use up to 1.5 credits of their expansion studio options and up to 3.0 credits of Faculty of Liberal Studies distribution credits toward a minor. No 100-level courses may be used toward a minor; no less than 1.0 full credit of the minor must be at the 300 or 400 level.
Declaring a Minor
Students wishing to have a minor recorded on their transcript must declare the minor no later than February 1st of the year they apply to graduate, and no earlier than February 1st of their first year of study at OCAD.
Forms for declaring the minor are available on the Website of the Office of the Registrar, as well as from the Faculty Offices.
