Students may supplement their major with a minor, although minors are not required for graduation.
While at Wells, most students find that their career interests don't just fit within one major. For those students wishing to officially focus their studies in an additional area, minor programs offer the chance to explore and increase their familiarity in a field. Students may declare up to two minors by the middle of their senior year.

Cognitive and Brain Sciences
