Students may choose a minor field of study, commonly called a minor, along with their major. A minor usually consists of 20 credits of study. Minors are optional, but many students find that a minor is helpful in providing greater career opportunities after graduation. The requirements for the various minors are listed within individual majors as well as in this section.
 
Following are the requirements for official University of Maine at Farmington minors. Contact the chairperson of the department offering the minor for an application.
