Insurance and Risk Management Minor


The online minor in insurance and risk management is an excellent way to increase employability and supplement skills and abilities for those students who wish to enter or advance their career in insurance, risk management, and other related fields.

The minor includes 18 credit hours of coursework taught by full-time faculty in the Scott College of Business. All courses are offered online. On-campus visits are not required.

Courses in the minor may partially satisfy requirements in the student’s major. Students should consult with their advisors before enrolling in courses to ensure suitability and plan their program of study.

The online insurance and risk management minor is open to eligible students in the U.S. (including the District of Columbia and all U.S. territories). The program also is open to students in Canada (all provinces). The program is closed to students residing in countries other than the U.S. and Canada except for U.S. military and State Department personnel and their family members with APO/FPO addresses.


The insurance and risk management minor is open to students in all majors except insurance and risk management. In addition to completing a minor, students must fulfill the University's requirements for graduation with a bachelor degree, including successful completion of a major offered by the Scott College of Business.

Note: Individuals who wish to enroll in one (or more) insurance courses—but do not intend to pursue bachelor degrees—may apply to the University as non-degree students. Registration is on a space available basis. For assistance, contact Indiana State Online at (812) 237-2345 or
