A minor is a secondary field of study to compliment your undergraduate program.

At Penn State Schuylkill you can complete six academic minors.

Business: The business minor provides students with the opportunity to develop and apply skills appropriate to the business contexts of their chosen majors.

Civic and Community Engagement: Through course work, research, and community field work, the minor cultivates student understanding of the connections between knowledge, scholarship, and the obligation to participate in and contribute to public issues in democratic society.

Information, Sciences, and Technology: This minor is structured to provide students with the theoretical frameworks and skill sets necessary to compete and be productive in the information technology-intensive global context that defines the new "Information Age."

Psychology: The psychology minor is designed to provide undergraduate students with a broad overview of topics and domains within psychology, knowledge and skills related to research methods in psychology, and deeper knowledge of research, theory, and application in one or two specific content domains.

Sociology: The sociology minor allows students to explore the wide range of topics, social groups, and social interactions studied by sociologists.

Theatre: The theatre minor is designed to be an enhancement to a major area of study and/or personal enrichment. The minor should be particularly attractive to students in the humanities (English), communication (film, journalism), and the arts (music, architecture).
