Academic Minors

Students at FIT have the opportunity to pursue an academic minor, a selection of courses focused on a particular discipline, or a combination of disciplines. This provides a more cohesive program of study and a deeper understanding of the chosen fields. These courses may also fulfill some of the majorís liberal arts requirements, and students often do not need to exceed their regular course load to pursue a minor or concentration. Upon successful completion of the selected courses in a minor with a 2.0 or higher GPA, the minor is recorded on the studentís transcript.

There are a wide range of options, including Asian Studies,  Communications, Dance and Performing Arts, Economics, English: Literature and/or Writing, Fashion Studies, Film and Media Studies, French, History, History of Art, International Politics, Italian, Japanese, Latin American Studies, Mathematics, Psychology, Sociology, Spanish, Creative Technology and Ethics and Sustainability.
