Explore the topical minor at UW-Eau Claire

Design your own minor with the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire's topical minor program. This interdisciplinary offering allows you to select classes based on your own interests and scholarly objectives. Students should choose courses for their minor based on a coherent theme, a definable professional need or a complementary relationship to their major.

The topical minor is an excellent choice for students who have a specific career or professional goal in mind. Past Blugolds have studied how immigration and deportation affect childhood, the philosophy of feminism, convergent media, music management and countless other topics. No matter your passions or interests, we'll help you cultivate a program that will get you to where you want to go. With an education from UW-Eau Claire, anything is possible.
