For a personalized set of courses, applicants may select a nine-hour "cognate" minor. This minor provides flexibility for talent development students to pursue nine semester hours in multiple areas of interest. It is possible to take a variety of approved graduate-level courses in departments across the university. Students work with the graduate advisor to select their courses.
