Undergraduate Minors

We offer three undergraduate minors focused on Information Technology & Arts, eSociety, and Library Science.

Minor Options

Information Science, Technology, and the Arts

Learn about all facets of information – deriving it, managing it, and extracting meaning from it. The minor in Information Science, Technology, and the Arts (ISTA) draws from the core classes in our B.A. and B.S. programs and is a great complement to almost any UA major.

A minor in eSociety is an ideal add-on for just about any major on campus as it offers a focus on issues in contemporary digital society from a variety of disciplinary vantage points. The minor in requires 18 units drawn from the eSociety major course list, and at least 12 of those units must be upper division (300 or 400 level).

The Library and Information Science (LIS) minor is a great introduction for work in any information context engaging with libraries, archives, special collections, material preservation, health information management, and more! This minor will pique your interest in UA's M.A. in Library and Information Science.

How to Declare

Any advisor can declare our three minors, but you can also declare a minor online.

To learn more about an Information minor, contact our Undergraduate Academic Advisor. Minors are encouraged to use walk-in hours, rather than booking an appointment. 

Double Dipping

You may double-dip up to 8 units (2 classes) in the eSociety and ISTA minors, as long as the courses are cross-listed and the double use is allowed within the other major or minor double-dipping policy.
