Is it worth getting a minor? My plan is to graduate with my undergrad asap. I took 6 years off from school working but since I got laid off, I went back to school. I completed 15 units this summer, am taking 18 now, and will have 21 units left. I plan on taking 18 next semester and 3 in the summer to graduate with a degree in finance. Since the spring and summer class schedules came out and I register in a week, I've been deciding what classes I need and will be taking. For the hell of it, I looked at minors. I was hoping they'd have something for marketing, but they don't. I did notice that they offer a minor for economics. Considering the econ classes I've taken and the one I need to take, I'd need to take an additional 9 units (3 classes) for the minor in economics. While looking at the list of classes, I've figured out that it is possible to take 18 units in the spring and 12 in the summer to graduate with a BA in finance and a minor in Economics. On a side note, I do enjoy economics, so it does intrigue me. I'm going to meet with an adviser tomorrow to go over everything, get their take, and make sure everything I've computed is correct. But, it can't hurt to get outside opinions. Do you think taking the additional classes to get a minor in econ is worth it, or just a waste of time? FWIW, during those years off from school, I spent 5 years in traffic engineering at basically the highest level (doing the same work as a PE, but I'd need a year more experience to take the test to become a PE, but I don't think I'll be looking to enter the same field).
