Getting a minor can help build your skills in your field of study when correctly applied to a complementing major.
A minor can also be beneficial when you know what type of career you want to get into after graduation. In many cases what you major in does not necessarily reflect what kind of career you will go into. But if you see yourself leaning toward a certain career, you can pair this somewhat unrelated major to a minor that correlates between the two.
Minoring in a language can be a great way to help you stand out from your competition in the job market.
These program requirements are subject to periodic revision by the academic department, and the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences reserves the right to make exceptions and substitutions as judged necessary in individual cases. Therefore, the College strongly urges students to consult regularly with their major, minor and CLAS advisors to confirm the best plans of study before finalizing them.
