Should I purse a minor?

I was considering a minor for my school resume, and I was wondering what is the best suited minor for an exercise science major as I apply myself forward through college?

Ming’s Answer

As long as you have both the time and interest in pursuing a minor, you should totally consider it!

If you're passionate about a specific area, a minor is a great way to continue to pursue that passion -- you may find out that you actually love it and want to switch your major!

Alternatively, you may want to pursue a minor to build upon interests that you have outside of your major or look for areas that are complementary to the Exercise Science major.

Some things that you might consider as complementary to Exercise Science might be:

Biology

Nutrition

Meditation


Best of luck!

I think minors are a great way of supplementing your academic experience in college! Depending on what you want to do with exercise science, you may consider business or related field as a minor as that will prepare you for many paths. Having business knowledge is great for any field and can help you advance professionally!

Ria recommends the following next steps:

look into business minors at schools you are interested in

I would recommend pursuing a minor if it is a subject you have at least a little bit of interest in! It never hurts to learn and focus on a subject you normally wouldn't have exposed yourself to . College is about discovery and surrounding yourself with as much knowledge / experience as you can take -- so if you have the time or interest, do it!

Ben’s Answer

I recommend checking course requirements for minors you are interested in, as there may be minors that overlap requirements with your major. This will allow you to achieve a minor without having to take on significant additional course load.


Agree - great advice! I also think that if you have a dream job that requires a diverse skill-set, getting a minor that helps you pursue that career as well could be helpful. However, to Ben's point, not if it impacts your course-load too much to negatively affect your grades/learning for your major. Jenna Jerkovich

It never hurts to add a minor if you have extra time/credits! However, it is not necessary if it means that you will have to spend additional time in school so I would talk to your counselor first to weight the pros/cons. Hope this helps!
