A minor is a university itinerary organised by a UAB centre, addressed to students aiming to acquire knowledge in an area different from their bachelor's degree, by taking subjects from another degree.
If all subjects in the minor itinerary are passed, students are issued a European Diploma Supplement (EDS) once they complete their degree. The credits of the minor will also go towards the total of credits needed to obtain the bachelor's degree and be considered optional credits included in the study plan of the degree.
