Program Information Ph.D. Minor in Nonprofit Management

Students in a Ph.D. program at Indiana University may select nonprofit management as an outside minor.

The nonprofit management minor enables students to broaden their field of study by enhancing their knowledge of management and governance issues in the nonprofit sector. Students pursuing the minor in nonprofit management are able to develop and address research agendas incorporating questions related to nonprofit organization and their management.

Course Requirements

The doctoral student must secure an advisor from the faculty of the School of Public and Environmental Affairs (SPEA). The faculty advisor will serve as the representative of SPEA in all examinations and other requirements of the student's Ph.D. program that pertain to the minor.

The minor in nonprofit management requires 12 credit hours of courses approved by the advisor. Three of the four courses must be SPEA courses. The additional course may come from SPEA or from any of a variety of disciplines relevant to nonprofit management. Some examples of courses appropriate for the SPEA minor in nonprofit management are listed below.

Special Requirement for 500-level Courses
Students taking a 500-level course (and V602) are required to show that they have completed doctoral-level work in conjunction with the course in order to count the course for the minor. Students must alert the instructor to their doctoral status and request additional/alternative assignments. If the instructor is unwilling to do this, the student should select a different course in conjunction with his or her advisor.

A minimum grade point average of 3.0 (B) must be attained in the courses used for the minor.
