Minors & Certificates

Add another dimension to your degree with an O’Neill minor or certificate

The O’Neill School of Public and Environment Affair’s wide variety of minors and certificates address environmental, health, policy, and management issues from a variety of perspectives, and may be an ideal compliment to your major, no matter what it may be.

O’Neill Minors

At O’Neill, our multidisciplinary faculty and subject areas address environmental, health, public policy, and management issues from a variety of perspectives—that makes a minor through O’Neill an ideal complement to majors across many fields. Check with your degree-granting unit at Indiana University to make sure you are eligible for the O’Neill minor (or minors!) you choose. Some degree-granting units at IU may allow only one, or only certain O’Neill minors. 

Choose from a variety of perspectives

  • Arts Management
  • Education Policy
  • Environmental and Sustainability Studies
  • Environmental Management
  • Environmental Science
  • Environmental Science and Health
  • Healthcare Management and Policy
  • Human Resource Management
  • Information Systems
  • Law and Public Policy
  • Nonprofit Management
  • Policy Studies
  • Public Finance
  • Public Management
  • Urban Planning and Community Development
  • Water Resources Science, Policy, and Management

For non-O’Neill students only, add a minor in Public and Environmental Affairs.

Each minor requires 15 hours of specified courses with a 2.000 grade point average. (Note: some degree-granting units at IU may require a specific grade in minor courses. Check with your school for any specific rules.)

If you’re an O’Neill student, you may double count up to 6 credit hours of minor courses with any other O’Neill academic program. Each O’Neill minor must have at least 9 hours that do not count toward any other O’Neill academic program. If you’re a non-O’Neill student, you cannot double count courses between O’Neill minors or certificates.
