The minor consists of 18 hours of graduate level courses taken in the participating departments and approved by the student's doctoral committee. No courses from the students' major field may be included in the minor. At least three different fields must be represented in the minor, and the maximum number of hours permitted in any one field is 9. Doctoral minors in the program must demonstrate competency, as determined by the student's committee, in Spanish and Portuguese except in special circumstances.

A minor at the master's level shall consist of a minimum of 9 hours in at least two fields outside the major.
