The Major Benefits of Choosing a Minor

A minor is a secondary area of study from your major or specific degree program. Although it is not a requirement for graduation, a minor provides a significant opportunity to "specialize" in a particular area or niche of your broader industry and gives you a way to pursue your interests in a field other than your major.

In addition, a minor shows future employers or graduate school admissions committees the diversity of your interests and skills; therefore, you might want to think about your future goals when choosing a minor. For example, if you are a Health Sciences major, a concentration in Urban Yoga or Health Care Management will go a long way to increase your marketability after graduation. Likewise, non-Health Professions students who are passionate about fitness and the multi-billion dollar sports industry with a Sport Management minor.

The School of Health Professions offers several minors for students who are seeking to expand their knowledge and skills both in their field or in a field other than their major.
