The Customized Minor provides opportunities for students to pursue a field of interest in the form of a minor that is not provided by the established curriculum. A Customized 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 with the proposed courses.
