Minors in other subjects

Students in Recreation and Leisure Studies honours or general plans may choose to complete a minor as part of their degree.

A minor is typically a group of eight to ten courses (0.5 unit each) offered by another department.

Some minors have required courses as part of the minor requirements in addition to a minimum average requirement for the minor courses, while others are open to any courses in that subject area.

Consult the Undergraduate Calendar for specific requirements for the department in which you plan to obtain a minor. Students considering Faculties of Education (Teachers' College) at the high school level often complete a minor for their first teachable subject.

You can view the available minors that are offered across the university grouped by area of interest on the Future Students webpage.

The following are some common minors completed by students in Recreation and Leisure Studies plans:

  • English
  • Event Management

It is important to meet with the academic advisor in the department offering the minor to ensure that you are meeting the requirements for graduation with the minor. This is also helpful in case you are having difficulty enrolling in any of the required courses for the minor.
