Minors can augment a student’s major study with eighteen hours of course work in complementary fields or can provide students with other interesting avenues of study.
A minor in history provides a solid foundation that may help open the doors to careers in teaching, journalism, libraries, public service, public policy, politics and private business.
A minor in criminal justice may lead to a career as a corrections officer, probation officer, forensics analyst, private security or as a paralegal.
History, Secondary Teaching Certification
A minor in history with a secondary teaching certification can complement any other specialization in education. High schools, whether public or private, are always looking for teachers who can effectively handle a variety of subjects.
A minor in social science is a good complement for any other degree. It indicates an ability to think well and critically, and it introduces students to the fields of history, political science and economics.
A minor in political science is a great choice for anyone thinking about a career in politics or law. It is best paired with a history, social science, or English degree.
