Customized Minor

A group of students work inside an art studio with stencils in front of them.

The Customized Minor provides opportunities for students to pursue a field of interest in the form of an individualized minor that is not provided by the established curriculum. An Individualized Minor is a minimum 15-credit suite of courses. The content of the Individualized Minor must be sufficiently different from existing minors at Pratt and coherently propose a field of study that is adequately covered by the proposed courses.


Interested in proposing a Customized Minor of your own? 

Step 1: Speak to your Academic Advisor and/or Amir Parsa, Founding Director, Center for Interdisciplinary Studies | Curator, Individualized Learning, and Renae Govinda, Program Coordinator for Interdisciplinary Studies, in the Office of the Provost
Step 2: Attend an Information Session
Step 3: Submit proposal form and all requisite documents by the last day of Add/Drop in a given semester

Note: Approval of a Customized Minor is contingent upon a selective review process. Proposing a Customized Minor does not guarantee approval.
