  • Accounting and Financial Management and Management

Minor Policy

Although minors are not required for graduation, many students choose one. A minor area of study consists of courses specified by each department. Typically, minors consist of five or six courses, over half of which must be taken at Hiram College. Minors available through the Center for Adult Studies are accounting, communication, entrepreneurship, environmental studies, and management. Requirements for each of these minors are available in the office of the Center for Adult Studies.

Minors cannot be taken in the same academic area as the major. Courses cannot be applied toward both a major and a minor without the approval of the relevant departments and the Associate Dean of Academic Affairs. The following major/minor combinations are NOT allowed:

  • Students may not major in Accounting and Financial Management and minor in Management or Marketing.
  • Students may not major in Management and minor in Accounting or Marketing.
  • Students may not major in Social Sciences and minor in Communication or Management.

Only three (3) courses can be used to satisfy requirements for both the double major or major and minor. All other minor course requirements must be separate from the major course requirements. Any student interested in a minor offered by Hiram College, but not through the Center for Adult Studies, should consult his or her academic advisor and the Associate Dean of Academic Affairs.
