2022-2023 Shepherd University Catalog

Minors for the BS, Appalachian Studies

Students should identify and choose two majors that complement their long-term career goals. Theme 1 is generally more humanities oriented, while Theme 2 is more science oriented.  The pairing is designed to give students a range of interdisciplinary skill sets within these typical liberal arts minors, and flexibility in the job market. In choosing the pairing of minors, students must work closely with advisors in APST and in the minor areas chosen to schedule classes efficiently for degree progression. They should also choose from these categories realizing that a key part of their degree - the final capstone project and presentation (APST 486 ) – will be based on the integration they can show or demonstrate.
