What minors does Athabasca University offer?

Minors give students an opportunity to include a secondary area of study, in addition to their major area of study within the Bachelor of Arts (BA) program.  A BA minor consists of 30 credits which are distinct from the declared major – 15 of which must be at the senior (300 or 400) level.  A student can declare a minor at any point in their studies, unlike the major which must be declared when applying to the BA program. There are a number of minors to choose from, see the calendar for more information about minors.
