User Topic: Should I add another minor?

My major is Communications and my current minor is Media Analysis. I have 13 classes left to register for until I graduate. Of those classes, 5 will be major courses, 2 will go toward my current minor, and 1 is a science elective I need.

That leaves me 5 classes to do whatever I want. I can take random electives in whatever subjects I choose, or I've considered adding a minor in Political Science, which requires exactly 5 classes. I'm interested in politics, but also like the idea of taking random classes.

When it comes to a career after college, I'm still undecided. There are so many options and I would love to work in a bunch of different areas (business, non profit, politics, marketing/advertising, public relations, etc).


ETA: Political Science is the only minor I would consider adding. It's the only one I'm intersted in that is offered online and I can't take classes on campus living overseas.

Why don't you start with a poli sci elective but don't commit to a minor until you have a class under your belt. My son just graduated with a double major and needed all his credits to do this almost. He did wish he had minored in one to be able to take some varied elective classes.

Yay you! for almost being done.

I majored in Journalism with a minor in Political Science. Having the additional minor will look better on your resume than just taking random classes. I say go for it.

I think that's tough to answer if you don't have a specific career in mind.

For all the jobs I've ever applied for, they didn't care WHAT I majored/minored in, just that I had a degree. I double majored in two areas I really was interested in/passionate about (one being COMPLETELY unrelated to my career), and I am glad I did.

However, I am sure that there are certain career where it is important you major in a related field.
