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 3-Dimensional Design, African American and Africana Studies, American Studies, Asian Studies, Caribbean Studies, Color Studies, Communication Studies, Creative Entrepreneurship, Creative Technology, Dance, Design Thinking, Economics, English: Literature and/or Writing, Ethnic Dress in a Global Context, Ethics and Sustainability, Fashion History Theory and Culture, Film and Media Studies, French, History, History of Art, Integrative Wellness, International Politics, International Trade and Marketing, Italian, Italian Studies, Japanese, Latin American Studies, LGBTQIA Studies, Mandarin Chinese, Mathematics, Middle East and North African Studies, Psychology, Sociology, Spanish, and Women and Gender Studies.
Visit the Academic Advisement Center in room C402 to create the best plan of action for completing the 5 courses (which the majority of the time adds up to 15 course credits) in a timely manner. Upon successful completion of the selected course credits with a 2.0 or higher GPA, your minor will be recorded on your transcript. Transfer students can transfer up to six (6) credits for any academic minor.
