Along with our degree programs, Finlandia’s Art & Design department offers a minor. Minors permit students to use their free electives to deepen their understanding and expertise in an additional area of study.
Although not required, many college students choose to complete a minor. In addition to bringing an element of cohesion to electives, minors enable students to pursue secondary areas of interest, develop a knowledge base and skills that complement their major, express themselves in a creative area, and/or learn more about themselves.
Minors typically require 21-to-24 credits and are counted towards one’s electives. Some minors align with majors, and many minors stand on their own.
