Expanded Academic Offerings Include Minor Programs
Addition will allow students to further specialize in their studies starting Fall 2011
NEW YORK, March 2, 2011—The King’s College is pleased to announce that it will add 11 minors to its academic programming beginning in the Fall semester of 2011. The minors will supplement our current major programs, providing our students with an opportunity to further specialize in areas of interest to their career path.
Dr. Calvin White, interim provost of The King’s College, said, “We think that being able to offer minors to students in 2011 and beyond will add further value to a degree from King’s. Minors will allow students to enhance their knowledge in particular fields, while bolstering the strength of their resume and transcript in the eyes of employers.”
The College currently offers three majors: Politics, Philosophy, & Economics; Business Management; and Media, Culture, & the Arts.
The minors to be offered include: Politics, Philosophy, Economics, Business, Media Studies, Culture & the Arts, Journalism, Pre-Law, Literature, Theology, and Foundations of Education.
Each minor draws from one or two courses from our Common Core—20 courses in politics, philosophy, economics, history, theology, and writing that all King’s students take. The rest of the courses in the minor are drawn from current course offerings in the various degree programs. Minors are open to any student, though a student may not select a minor that is part of their major. For example, a PPE major could choose a Journalism minor, or a Business major could opt to minor in Philosophy.
