Minors

There are numerous minors available for students at Bowling Green State University. A minor is a student’s declared secondary field of study or specialization. There are numerous reasons for students to participate in BGSU’s minor programs; whether you are looking to make yourself more flexible in the job market or you have a passion for another area besides aviation, participation in minors is always a beneficial endeavor.

The Airport Systems and Operations (ASO) minor is available to students in any undergraduate major at BGSU except students majoring in the Aviation Management and Operations (AMO) or Aviation Engineering Technology (AET) specializations. Students must meet all prerequisites for the required courses.

The Airport Systems and Operations (ASO) minor is designed to prepare students for career positions similar to the AMO specialization. Airports are interdisciplinary in their activities, but without an aviation background, few students from other disciplines have access to the industry. The minor is intended to supplement a student's academic career choice with the specialized knowledge of airports and aviation.

The General Business minor is designed for students who are majoring in non-business fields and want a foundation in business. The general business minor is available to all students except those completing a BSBA degree or majoring in Business Education or Marketing Education in the College of Education and Human Development.

All students must complete at least 15 credit hours toward the minor that are not counted in the student's major or specialization or in another minor. Substitute courses must be approved by the College of Business.
