Minors

The Minor programs offered in the Faculties of Arts and Science may be taken in conjunction with any BCom program.

Students doing a Minor program must have a Faculty of Management Minor Approval Form, listing the courses being applied to the Minor, signed by the Minor adviser in the relevant department.

For the Minor in Economics, students must complete 18 credits of material that does not overlap with Management course content. A maximum of 6 credits will be permitted within the BCom program for MGCR 293 and ECON 230D1/D2 or ECON 250D1/D2, and a maximum of 6 for ECON 295 and ECON 330D1/D2 or ECON 352D1/D2. Students interested in this Minor must obtain approval from the BCom Office.

The Minor in Mathematics and the Minor in Statistics are detailed below. For all other Minors, please refer to the Arts and Science Faculty sections. Students should begin the Minor in Mathematics or the Minor in Statistics no later than the second to last year and should immediately consult the appropriate adviser in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics.

Students planning to take the Minor in Statistics are advised to substitute MATH 324 for MGCR 271. That course will then count as 3 credits toward the Minor. If the decision to take a Minor program is made after MGCR 271 has been taken, students who wish to take MATH 324 will receive three additional credits; however MATH 324 will only count towards the 18-credit Minor requirement. Students should check for overlap between statistics courses with the BCom Student Affairs Office.

Approval Steps: 

  • BCom students should only fill out a PDF icon Minor Approval Form should their minor courses on their Degree Evaluation not fall into the proper minor category. 
  • Once the form is filled out students must get the minor form signed by the Minor Advisor and then brought back to the BCom office.
