- The CSD minor has been phased out of the JMU offerings. Students who have entered JMU in the 2017-2018 academic year are the last group eligible to declare the minor.
- For students who have already declared the minor it requires students to take 18 credits in courses that begin with the CSD prefix, excluding CSD 300, 314, 470 and 471 which are open only to majors
Students interested in obtaining a minor in CSD need to consult the Undergraduate Catalog for details. A number of the courses have prerequisites that students need to know about to ensure smooth and efficient progress through the minor. Most undergraduate courses are only offered once year so students need to plan carefully.
