Minors & Certificates


The College of Business offers opportunities for undergraduate students to enhance their major programs with minors and certificates.

The following pertains to undergraduate academic programs offered for college credit.  For information about non-credit executive education programs, please contact the Office of Executive Education.


MINORS are official programs of study; when completed, they are noted on the student’s official transcript.  You can view a list of all available minors and required courses as well as learn more about minor policies and advising.

CERTIFICATES are noted on the student's transcript, but they do not require the completion of a bachelor’s degree to be recorded. In addition, students receive a document to note the completion of the program.  All students must submit an application for certificate at the end of their second-to-last term at FAU for the certificate to be awarded.  You can view a list of all available certificates and required courses as well as learn more about certificate policies and advising including how to apply for your certificate.
