In addition to fulfilling all the basic requirements for a minor (see Minor Fields of Study), students who declare a minor in hunger studies must complete the following requirements:

This minor intends to prepare students for leadership roles in understanding and eradicating hunger. Requirements include 18 credits (at least 12 at the 200-level or above), nine of which will be core courses, including the introductory course HSS 130; up to three 1-3-credit internships; and a 3-credit capstone course which will include one credit for portfolio development. No course may be used for both the major and minor. Courses in general education may be used for the minor.

All courses must be taken for a grade, except for the internship and portfolio credits, and a grade of 2.00 or better must be earned in each graded course. To declare this minor, a student must have the approval of a program advisor and an academic advisor.
