Students at FIT have the opportunity to pursue an academic minor, a selection of courses focused on a particular discipline or a combination of disciplines. This provides a more cohesive program of study and a deeper understanding of the chosen fields. Upon successful completion of the selected courses in a minor with a 2.0 or higher GPA, the minor is recorded on the student’s transcript. There are a wide range of options, including American Studies, Asian Studies, Communication Studies, Dance and Performing Arts, Economics, English: Literature and/or Writing, Ethics and Sustainability, Fashion Studies, Film and Media Studies, French, History, History of Art, International Politics, Italian, Italian Studies, Japanese, Creative Technology, Latin American Studies, Mathematics, Mandarin Chinese, Psychology, Spanish, and Sociology.
