1. Choosing a minor requires a lot of thought as well as exploration. You should "try out" different minors through courses that can also satisfy your breadth requirements. This is a good way to explore other disciplines early on, while also fulfilling a breadth requirement for the undergraduate major.



2. Students should talk to your home advisor about your different interests and ways to be thoughtful and strategic when planning your schedule to include courses in these other interest areas. Students should also talk to advisors in departments in which you are thinking about minoring in to get get good information about the fields to study, degree requirements, etc.


3. Your minor should be declared by the junior year. You should spend your first two years exploring different interest areas, so that by your junior year, you are ready to make a decision about which minor is the best fit, and you can then spend your junior and senior years completing the minor requirements.


4. The advisor in the minor's department must declare the minor. No advisor in undergraduate business can declare minors outside of business.



5. Yes!
