This is the preliminary (or launch) version of the 2024-2025 VCU Bulletin. We may add courses that expose our students to cutting-edge content and transformative learning. We may also add content to the general education program that focuses on racial literacy and a racial literacy graduation requirement, and may receive notification of additional program approvals after the launch. The final edition and full PDF version will include these updates and will be available in August prior to the beginning of the fall semester.

Students must apply for this minor and acceptance is based on an application review. A cumulative GPA of 2.0 in the minor is expected for continuance in the program.

Completion of the minor requires 18 credits in the following courses:
