Course of Study

Postby gecko18 » Thu Sep 07, 2017 9:35 am

Hey all,
I realize this is a strange predicament but I'm torn between two academic minors. I graduate this semester and could earn either one (but not both), have a strong basis in both, and don't feel particularly strongly toward either one. I'm your typical social science major, and I'm between a marketing minor and a childhood studies minor. I want to work in international human rights law. I realize that marketing isn't especially applicable to law, but does it make me a bit more interesting of a candidate to have social science and then business? Or would childhood studies look better, because I could focus on child populations within the legal field? Please let me know what you think, I'm just trying to make a decision.

Will not have any impact on your applications or your future career.

I haven't seen a single app that asks for your minors or even has a spot for you to list them, so do whatever seems more interesting to you!

It doesn't really matter.

Pick whichever of the two best interests you and the one you can get high grades in!

Nobody cares as long as you get a degree.

Thanks all! I went with the one that I'm closer to finishing. :wink:
