How to Declare an Arabic Minor

For other majors, including those outside the College of Liberal Arts (Business, Education, Engineering, Nursing, Sciences, Social Work, etc…), please download and fill out our Minor Enrollment form, initialing and signing where indicated, then take the form to your major advisor for his signature. Once you and your major advisor have signed the form, deliver it to the Department of Modern Languages in 230 Hammond Hall.
