Students at the JSAA can opt for any of the prefigured minors or even design their own minor in consultation with a faculty mentor. The minor area of study can work in two ways for students. On the one hand, it can provide a student with an area of concentration within their major discipline or an assailed field. For example, a student majoring in architecture can minor in Spatial Analytics. On the other hand, the minor area of study can also provide a student with an additional or a secondary area of study, for example a student majoring in BA (Hons.) Built Environment Studies, or B. Des. and get a minor in Legal Studies.
