WHAT IS A MINOR?

A minor is a secondary academic subject you can focus on in addition to your major. Your minor can be directly connected to your major (a criminal justice major may minor in restorative justice) or unrelated (an art major may minor in diversity studies). If you have multiple interests, choosing a minor gives you an opportunity to learn more about another field you enjoy, or study an additional area that will be beneficial to your major. 

In addition to supporting your education, declaring a minor can be beneficial when you’re applying for jobs or graduate school. Minors show employers and academic institutions that you’re a hard worker, flexible, and able to handle a heavier workload. Visit with your advisor if you think a minor is for you.

WHAT IS AN UNDERGRADUATE CERTIFICATE?

An undergraduate certificate allows you to engage with a focused program of study on a specific topic. Your certificate can be directly related to your major or focus on an unrelated area in which you would like to have specific training. If you have many interests, or simply haven’t decided how you want to tailor your undergraduate degree experience, earning a certificate can give you a level of competency and practical skills in coursework related to a field you’re interested in, while allowing you to keep your educational options open.

Certificates are available to all undergraduate students at OU. You may complete the certificate program while enrolled in an undergraduate program. The credit you take to complete the certificate may also be applied to requirements for an undergraduate degree.
