Hey guys, I was just wondering how important it is, in your experience, to have a minor as part of your degree. I've asked my counsellors at university what they think, and inevitably the answer is "well, it depends" and they won't tell me anything more. I guess it depends on your degree and your aspirations, but I am an English major and I don't want to be a teacher or anything (not entirely sure what I'm up for, but something to do with international development or travel!) and the answer I've come up with for myself is... you came here to enjoy yourself, to learn things you wanted to learn. Just have fun! Don't limit yourself! Maybe I should also mention that I'm going to get a college degree after my B.A. so I guess that's partially why I'm not so worried about a minor Anyway, what do you think? Did you guys find it useful to have a minor? Maybe the school system is different in the U.S. (I'm from Canada) but there's not a huge emphasis here on double majors, etc. I think the general opinion is that a B.A. is a B.A., and it doesn't really matter whether you study politics, history, english, etc. because you'll end up in the same spot!
