While your major will be your primary focus of study, minors allow you to explore other interests and strengthen your future career prospects. Choosing a minor that complements your major helps in your search for a career. For example, a Business major may minor in Writing, which would signal strong communication skills to future employers, or a Nursing major could minor in Africana Studies or Latin American & Caribbean Studies, which would signal knowledge of these communities to future employers. The combinations are almost endless, so speak to a Humanities professor to see how a Humanities minor can build on your interests and strengthen your career.
