Students interested in a minor are strongly encouraged to confer with their major field advisor and directors of graduate studies for both their major and minor.
Minors must be declared before the oral prelim exam (PhD) or before the final thesis exam (MS). Most programs require that the minor be declared at the time the Graduate Degree Program Plan (GDP) is submitted, but some require declaration after all courses have been completed - so best practice is to contact the director of graduate studies for the minor.
Graduate students IN Earth Sciences have recently declared minors in Museum Studies, but many more options are available.
