Aurora’s Answer

The short answer is no if you're thinking about most traditional universities. If you're not really interested in pursuing a traditional degree and just want to take I few courses, I would strongly recommend looking into a community college to take just the courses you are interested in. You may also want to look into technical or trade schools or continuing education courses available locally.

Can you attend a separate college to get a minor?


Technically speaking, no.


If you are not enrolled in a degree program at an institution, you technically cannot earn a "Minor" in a discipline.


However, you can still take courses at another institution, and you can work towards a non-degree certificate. Oftentimes, universities and colleges may offer continuing/professional education courses that provide a certificate in a specific discipline. Certificate programs tend to amount to the same amount of credits as a "minor."


An Associate's Degree at another institution may also be an option.
