Are You Going to Declare a College Minor?

Article by Nicole on 17 Nov 2012

Once you've decided on your college major (which is by no means an easy decision for some students - follow our forum thread on that subject here), now comes the time to decide whether or not to also declare a minor. We've written about this topic, with some advice about why a minor might be a good idea for you. It seems that many students decide to declare a minor if:

  • An area of specialization is required within their major
  • They want to pursue another interest in addition to their major in a formal and structured way
  • Having a minor may make them more competitive in the job market

Are you thinking about declaring a minor? What are your reasons for wanting to minor in an additional subject? Chime in to the conversation with a comment below.
