Minors require 15-18 hours of selected coursework in a specific field of study. The minor designation appears on a student's transcript but not their diploma. Once declared, a minor becomes part of the student's graduation requirements. Students can choose up to two minors. Students must declare a minor before their graduating semester. Students must receive a signed approval from the Department of Architecture's academic advisor and then make an application in the student's home college or major department.

The Department of Architecture offers a minor in Art & Architectural History, Sustainable Architecture and Planning, Architectural Fabrication and Product Design, and Architectural Heritage Conservation.

Many B.E.D. students minor in business, which is offered through Mays Business School. Application is made directly with the student's major academic advisor.

A complete list of minors offered by the university can be found on the Office of the Registrar website.
