Minors

ShqipSrpski

At RIT Kosovo (A.U.K), a minor is defined as a thematically related set of courses consisting of no fewer than 15 semester credit hours taken from a discipline or an interdisciplinary area distinct from the student’s primary program of study. Completion of a minor results in a formal designation on a student’s academic transcript upon graduation. If a student choses to complete a minor, it is necessary to fill out a Minor Authorization form. Failure to complete this form will result in the student not being certified for the minor and the minor not being listed on the student’s official record.

Currently there are 3 minors offered at RIT Kosovo (A.U.K). Students can chose to complete one minor prior to graduation. Students, who are required to do an immersion at A.U.K. may take additional two courses in the same field to graduate with a minor.
