Choosing a college minor

Wednesday, November 09, 2011
You may have trouble deciding on a college major, especially if you have an interest in more than one field. Fortunately, you can focus your studies on two subjects, even if they are unrelated, if your school allows you to choose both a major and a minor.

While a major will be your main area of focus, a minor allows you to take a concentration of courses in a secondary field. A minor typically requires less credits than a major but you usually must fulfill requirements in the minor field by taking both introductory and upper level courses.

There are several reasons why you should consider choosing a minor. For instance, if you hope to pursue a career in engineering, but have a strong interest in music, selecting a major in engineering and a minor in music will allow you to take classes in a subject you enjoy while pursuing a career-focused major.

If you are confident about the major you have selected, a minor can also be a good way to expand your knowledge in a related area. For example, if you major in business, then minoring in accounting or finance can only enhance your chances of finding work after graduation. ADNFCR-16000756-ID-800638459-ADNFCR - helping you find colleges and universities that offer the accredited programs that most interest you.
