Minor in Sports, Society, and Technology

For students in other majors interested in broadening their educational experience at Georgia Tech, the School of History and Sociology offers minors in history; sociology; Health, Medicine, and Society; Science, Technology, and Society; Sports, Society, and Technology; and participates in the interdisciplinary minors in Social Justice; and Women, Science, and Technology.

Program of Study

A multidisciplinary minor may contain courses in a student’s major field of study. A maximum of 6 credit hours of such courses may be used to satisfy the course requirements for the minor, provided these courses are not also used to satisfy any course requirement in the student’s major degree program.

In addition to the courses listed here, there are other courses offered less regularly—for example, Special Topics and Undergraduate Research classes---that may count toward the minor. The SST adviser should be consulted for guidance. Three credit hours taken outside of SST courses may be counted toward the minor, with the approval of the SST minor advisor.

  • All courses counting toward the minor must be taken on a letter-grade basis and must be completed with a grade of C (2.00) or better.
  • A maximum of 6 credit hours of Special Topics courses may be included in a minor program or the student may complete 3 credit hours of Special Topics and 3 credit hours of either Special Problems or Undergraduate Research. Students may not use 6 credit hours of either Special Problems or Undergraduate Research for a minor.
  • A maximum of 3 credit hours of transfer credit may be used to satisfy the course requirements for a minor. This includes courses taken at another institution or credit earned through the AP or IB program, assuming the scores meet Georgia Tech minimum standards.
  • It is the major advisor’s responsibility to verify that students are using only courses from the designated block(s) from the student’s major field of study that are allowed to satisfy a minor program, that they are not using any Core Area A-E courses (including humanities and social sciences), and that they are not using any courses for more than one minor or certificate. Any free elective course used to satisfy the course requirements of the student’s major degree program may also be used to satisfy the course requirements for a minor.
