Minor Programs

Academic Minors are designed for students to explore and strengthen their understanding of specialized fields of knowledge. Minors comprise sets of courses that may be linked thematically or that have an international focus to complement their field of study. These programs draw on classes in a variety of disciplines to provide concentrated clusters of knowledge that enhance undergraduate degree programs. This international enhancement will add intangible value, interdisciplinary skills and intercultural management abilities to the undergraduate degree, setting students apart from other candidates in future professional or academic opportunities.

Minors are equivalent to 30 ECTS and students receive a specialized certificate from the host institution. Finalizing students of the Bachelor’s Degree in Tourism or Bachelor’s Degree in Culinary and Gastronomic Sciences with all required courses enrolled will be eligible for the Minors Programs. Students are required to have passed 240 ECTS credits at the start of the program at the host institution.

If this requirement has not been fulfilled at the time of application, CETT-UB Academic Coordination will request academic referral from the professors of the remaining credits enrolled. In order to accept the application, said referral must prove the student’s positive progress. The definitive admission to the program will be subject to obtaining the 240 ECTS credits.
