Henry C. Lee College Minors

Why a minor is a good idea.

With all of the requirements involved in your major program, why add to the list with a minor, you ask?  Good question, and it has an equally good answer.

A minor — an additional interest — adds dimension to your education.  It also opens up career possibilities that your major alone may not.  While your major determines the general field in which you’ll forge a career, a minor can help shape your career path within that field.

Not to be overlooked: A minor on your resume can give you an edge over someone equally qualified in your major.  It can tip the scales in your favor, telling potential employers you are a well-rounded person and that you do more than the minimum required of you.
