Architecture majors cannot use CNS 2363 for the minor because it is required major work. CNS 1312 and CNS 2811 are required as a substitution.

Minors are available to all undergraduate students at OU. If the minor is officially declared and approved, successfully completed, and noted on the graduation application, the student’s transcript will so indicate at the time the bachelor’s degree is posted.
