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.

The minor consists of a total of 18 credits, with a minimum of nine credits at the 300 level or higher. Students consult with their adviser for course selection and current offerings. Two courses must be transfer credits to successfully complete the minor.
