Does doing a minor generally mean you have to take a 5th year to complete your degree?
Amir Hanna (IGEN 3rd year)

One of our core courses (COMM 280) can go towards an Entrepreneurship minor! Might add 1 semester instead of 1 year, depends on the load you choose
Brianna Gopaul
39:53

Ivy McKay

Within in IGEN you can choose a major/minor/tertiary specialty right? But this is not the same as doing an 18 credit minor that you could do from any other program correct?
Brianna Gopaul
42:06
so that minor would not count towards your technical electives right?
