In deciding what to major in for college, how do you process majors and minors in the course selecting process?

I am a recently graduated high school student, and I am majoring in Neuroscience at the University of Illinois at Chicago. I want to minor in Spanish and vocal performance. I am asking because I am unsure of how to minor in those particular fields of study while having a filled schedule for Neuroscience. #counselor #stem #guidance-counselor

Generally, to minor in any area, you need to take several classes in that area. So you need to be prepared to study (and or practice) two different areas.


Be sure to speak to an advisor or counselor at your school to learn whether there are any specific requirements for earning a minor. I had to write a paper explaining how my minor related to my major and how I would use the knowledge gained in my career. But to my understanding, such a requirement is not typical.

I would recommend to speak with an advisor at your school. Also you might be able to get some insight from your professors in regards to minors based on your major. Minors can require quite a bit of work and studying as well so you will want to ensure that you pick a minor that doesn't impact your major but I would recommend to pick a minor that you are passionate about or consider fulfilling.
I was an extended major so I didn't have to pick a minor. That might be an option for you.
