A major indicates a concentrated area of study. Throughout your college career, you’ll take more classes from that area than any other—that’s how you’ll gain expertise in that field. A minor is also concentrated study in one area, but requires fewer classes. Combining a major and a minor is not only a great way to earn a degree in a field you love, but doing so also allows you to study another subject about which you’re passionate.
Pre-professional programs are paths of concentrated study that prepare you to gain entry and succeed in professional schools (medical school, law school, etc.).
