Choosing your minor

Your options will depend on the major or concentration you choose. Choose a minor that will help you academically and build your GPA.

A minor can:

  • Complement your major or concentration.
  • Provide early preparation for a “Plan B” career.
  • Allow for a break from your major area of study.
  • Enhance knowledge of a personal interest.
  • Provide prerequisites for graduate school.
