A Minor is an opportunity for you to explore a secondary area of undergraduate study either for personal interest or as an area of specific expertise related to your Ted Rogers School Program. A Minor will not appear on your diploma, but will appear on your Official Transcript. 

A minor consists of six (6) single-term courses. Courses in a Minor that also appear in your degree's curriculum, in any category, may also be used toward the fulfillment of the Minor. Exceptions are noted within the Minor's curriculum.

Choosing a Minor

Many TRSM students choose to minor in a subject of their choice to complement their degree. If this is something that interests you, here’s how: 

  1. Take a look at List of available Minors (button above) and find a subject area that interests you. 
  2. Once you have decided on a subject area, have a look at the course requirements for that Minor and determine how they will work into your degree requirements. 
  3. Complete the course requirements listed under your specific Minor throughout your undergraduate degree. Pay attention to any exclusions/restrictions noted within the Minor’s curriculum.
  4. Declare your Minor(s) upon applying to graduate. It is your responsibility to apply for the Minor at the time you submit an Application to Graduate on MyServiceHub. 

Pay attention to any exclusions and/or restrictions noted within the Minor’s Curriculum. Please be sure to read all rules associated with your Minor of choice as it is your responsibility to follow these in order to earn a Minor.

Minor Exclusions (Example)

Completing More Than One Minor

Are you interested in completing more than one Minor during your undergraduate degree? This is possible! With careful planning and course mapping, you may take more than one Minor. However, an individual course may only be used to satisfy the requirements of one Minor. 

Double Counting a Course 

A course may be used to satisfy the requirements of your Major (Liberal Studies or Open Electives) and ONE Minor. This means you can double count, btut not triple. For example: 

CMN 279 can count towards your Major in Marketing Management, and your Minor in Professional Communication, however you CANNOT count it towads your second Minor of Entrepreneurship. 

If you need any help with planning your courses, contact for assistance.

Course Listed in a Minor not in Your Program's Course Categories?

Depending in the minor you choose, not all courses listed in a Minor are included in your Program's curriculum, and if taken, would become non-applicable to your degree requirements and be listed in the Non-Applicable Courses section on your Academic Advising Report.

In such cases, Course Directives may be possible. A Course Directive is used when a course is not applicable to your degree and you wish to get approval from your program department to have it counted towards your elective requirement(s). Please contact for further information on submitting a Course Directive form, and getting an approval from the Ted Rogers School of Management.
