Study at LAU

Minors and Diplomas


Minors are optional mini-specializations in a particular subject. The subject could be related to the major, or very different. For example, someone could graduate in computer science with a minor in English Literature. The earlier you choose a minor, the better, so that you can plan to complete all your courses (major and minor) at the same time.

All minors are available on both campuses, unless specified.


Diplomas typically consist of courses you take in addition to your major. In some cases, the courses can be taken while you study, but some diploma programs require a completed bachelor’s degree.

Diplomas are available in Beirut only, unless specified.
