Why pursue a minor?

While any major at LaGrange College also can be declared as a minor, there are several areas of study (listed at left) that are available only as a minor.

There are a number of good reasons to consider a minor:

  • Minors can make you more attractive to employers. An additional area of study shows a prospective employer that you're versatile, that you are interested and accomplished in more than one topic, and that you're ambitious.

  • Graduate schools also like a minor. An additional area of study may help your admission chances or give you another degree option.

  • Why not learn more about a topic that you're passionate about? Isn't that what college is all about?

At LaGrange College, students are encouraged to consider a minor, and most majors will accommodate one. Consider a minor that will enhance your major program of study.
