Business recruiters seek out students who have taken advantage of opportunities to enrich their undergraduate learning experience and develop new skills through Pamplin College minors. These minors build upon a student's academic preparation in the area of specialization of their major, and add a breadth of academic preparation that prepares a student for the interdisciplinary society in which they will live and work. Information concerning the completion of Pamplin College minors can be listed on a student's curriculum resume and are included on a student's official Virginia Tech transcript.
Undergraduate students may apply for admissions into a Pamplin College minor by completing an application form that is available online, or through the Office of Undergraduate Programs in 1046 Pamplin Hall. Those students who are accepted into a Pamplin College minor are given the same preference for course selection during the course registration process that is similar to that provided to students who are majoring in that department. In many cases, due to the availability of Advanced Placement (AP) credit and overlapping course requirements in a number of curricula, these minors can be completed without having to extend one's time to degree.
