Minors in the Humanities

Students who are interested in pursuing a minor degree in addition to their major for a better future career can now make up their minds. The Faculty of Humanities is now offering six minor degrees in Psychology, Arabic, Journalism, English Language, English Literature, Radio-TV, Advertising and Marketing and Translation.

Students enrolled at NDU may register for minor courses at any time, but may only declare minors once in junior standing and above. Students may consult with the minor advisor and submit the necessary forms and receive the approval of the advisor. They may also declare the minor through a petition in their junior year or above. Each minor shall have a separate contract sheet specified and supplied by the Department or Faculty offering the minor.

There will be a GPA for the minor calculated separately; the GPA shall be considered by the registrar for the sole aim of judging the successful fulfillment of the requirements for that minor. If the requirements of the minor are not completed by the time of the studentís graduation, the minor can be independently completed and acknowledged after graduation.

There are a certain number of credits for minors. A minor shall consist of 15 to 18 credits. A minor may not include more than two courses or six credits which are counted in the studentís Major Requirements category.

To obtain information and to declare their minor, students may visit the Minor Advisor during office hours.
