SPEA Minors: Open to all IU Students

SPEA’s multidisciplinary faculty and curricula address environmental, health, public policy, and management issues from a variety of perspectives, making a SPEA minor an ideal complement to majors from across many fields.  Any Indiana University student enrolled in a bachelor’s program (and in good academic standing) may pursue one (or more) of the minors offered by the School of Public and Environmental Affairs. Students should check with their degree-granting unit to make sure they are eligible for the SPEA minor(s) of their choice.

General Policies and Procedures

Each minor requires 15 hours of specified courses with a 2.000 grade point average, and none of the courses may be taken by correspondence through the School of Continuing Studies. SPEA students may only double-count 6 of the required 15 credit hours in other SPEA major or minor requirements. Non-SPEA majors cannot double count courses between SPEA minors and/or certificates. SPEA students may earn up to three minors from SPEA, but each minor must have at least 9 hours that are not satisfying other major or minor requirements.
