MOODY COLLEGE MINORS

Explore our Minors

A minor is a great way to complement or expand your studies beyond your major. You can explore a subject you are interested in, boost your expertise in specific areas and increase your academic resume while showing potential employers that you are willing to put in extra effort to learn as much as you can.

Earning a minor from the Moody College of Communication is a perfect addition to majors from any of UT Austin’s colleges and schools. Communication skills are among the most sought after by employers in all fields, as they seek candidates who can speak and write clearly and effectively, as well as produce powerful and persuasive multimedia projects.

Minor eligibility is based on the catalog for your degree. Please select your catalog from the tabs below to see the minors and certificates available to you.

You can find your catalog in the Profile section at the bottom of the IDA Audit Request page.

University Minor Policies

The following are University-wide rules regarding minors and can be found in the Undergraduate Catalog under the section titled The University and Minor and Certificate Programs.

  • The minor must be completed in conjunction with an undergraduate degree at the University of Texas at Austin.
  • A student may not earn a minor in the same field of study as their major.
  • Minors must include a minimum of six hours of upper division coursework.
  • Individual minors may require additional upper division hours.
  • At least half of the required course work in the minor must be completed in residence at The University of Texas at Austin.
  • At least nine of the hours required for the minor must include coursework not used to satisfy the requirements of the student’s major; this includes courses in non-major departments that are cross-listed with courses offered within the student’s major department. However, courses in the minor may fulfill other degree requirements such as general education requirements or required elective hours.
  • Transcript recognition is awarded at the time of undergraduate degree completion.
