Stephanie’s Answer

Minors cannot be completed independently without a major. Similarly, you can't get a minor after you've already graduated from a bachelor's degree program. What I would recommend is to go to a 1-2 trade school/vocational program, get a 2 year associates degree, or attend a coding academy or bootcamps, locally or online (see links below for some options!).

Jayme’s Answer

Associates Degrees are a great alternative to Minors (since minors need to be tied to a bachelor's degree). Good news about Associates Degrees is that they are achievable through community college as well and thus much less expensive to obtain. These credits that you get while at the community college are also transferable to most universities if you decide to go for a full bachelor's degree as well (try to go to a community college in the area or at least state of the university that you might want to transfer into). Depending on your level in school already, associate's degrees are also possible to achieve while in High School through concurrent enrollment (free) - ask your counselor at school for details.

Frank’s Answer

You can minor in any subject area you have an interest in. However keep in mind that some degrees actually require a minor. For example, I received a bachelor's of science degree in computer science but as part of that degree program, I also had to have a minor in math.
