Departmental List of Approved Courses for the Water Sciences Minor:
Please see departmental list for major degree programs
No single course may be used by a student to satisfy a major requirement and a minor requirement. A course may be used, however, to satisfy both a major support requirement and a minor requirement. At the discretion of the program director and adviser, ad hoc electives (such as new courses, special offerings, and one-time courses) may be approved in writing to fulfill minor requirements.
The requirements for a minor must be completed concurrently with the major degree requirements. No minor may be added by completing courses after receiving the bachelor’s degree. Minors in the College are available to all undergraduate students at OU. If the minor is officially declared, successfully completed, and noted on the graduation application, the student’s transcript will so indicate at the time the bachelor’s degree is posted.
