 It is strongly suggested that students use their elective credits to earn a minor such as Marketing, Business Administration, Food Science and Technology, Human-Animal Interaction, or a Language.

*Elective credit may vary based on prerequisites, dual credit, AP credit, double majors, and/or minor coursework.
