Resume question: "B.A., Major and Minor, Year"

Postby zx92027xz » Sat Oct 01, 2011 2:44 pm

is it appropriate to put the following:

UNIVERSITY OF BLAH BLAH
Candidate for Bachelor of Arts, Economics and Business Law, May 2012 (Expected)

if my major is Economics and my MINOR is Business Law? how would i input a minor into my resume if that is not appropriate. I am afraid that saying "econ and bus law" im implying its a double major, but im not looking to deceive... i just want to annotate that i have a minor in business law.

No, that is misleading. Indicate that Business Law is your minor.

UNIVERSITY OF BLAH BLAH
Candidate for Bachelor of Arts: Economics, May 2012 (Expected)
Minor: Business Law


Or however you want to do it.

No, I think it's much better to separate and clearly label the major and minor like ph14 did.
