    The Honors Minor in Interdisciplinary Studies is a Minor of 23 hours. Twelve of those hours may sometimes be double-counted for General Education credit for students who have a prescribed minor, or extensive major hours, required by their major department. Students with a traditional major and minor degree plan may use Honors as their minor and no double-counting will be needed. All students, regardless of major, may apply for the Honors Program.
