Ph.D. Minor

Ph.D. minors

Consult with the director of graduate studies to find a 12 to 15 credit hour minor to get even more value from your degree. Minors may be taken in a single department or in an interdepartmental program, like Ancient Studies or Mythology Studies. You may also choose an interdepartmental minor in a related field, such as religious studies, philosophy, or medieval studies; choosing a minor in a related field introduces Ph.D. candidates to different methodologies that can offer valuable insights into the study of ancient Greece or Rome. Gaining knowledge in related fields and mastering different methodologies is absolutely essential in research, academic, and other career environments where flexibility is a must and broad knowledge in many areas is invaluable.
