Minor Requirements

Students interested in a minor, rather than a major, in public service should check with their academic advisor. For College of General Studies students, the minor would be professional elective course work. For Kenneth P. Dietrich School of Arts and Sciences students, the minor would be non-Dietrich School of Arts and Sciences elective course work. For the minor, students must complete five courses (15 credits) with at least three courses from the University of Pittsburgh. A 2.0 average is required in the minor.
