Minors at KU

Below, you'll find a list of minors available at KU! The course code for classes in the minor (or "Multiple" if there is more than one), features a link to the KU Program Catalog page for that minor.

While this list can be a great place to start thinking about a minor, you should contact Zac Shields, the advisor for Design students, to learn more about any minor(s) in which you're interested and learn more about how a minor might plug in to your path to graduation!
