Entrepreneurship - Minor

The entrepreneurship minor fosters development of a creative, visionary mindset and spirit and prepares students to be opportunity seekers and creators that identify, evaluate, and implement innovative, value-added solutions. The entrepreneurship minor requires a total of 15 credit hours to consist of 6 hours of foundational courses that are common across all clusters plus 6 hours of discipline-specific courses and a 3-hour capstone experience. The minor includes discipline-specific course clusters intended to aid students’ course selection. Course clusters are not restrictive. Students may select courses within a single cluster or across multiple clusters to best meet their interests and professional goals. Undergraduate Studies’ units have modified services available to students enrolled via distance education, at branch campuses, or at other instructional locations.
