Adding a minor allows you to reinforce your Wells education while adding a specialization in a field outside your major.
While minors aren't required for the degree, they provide new experiences and insights in related programs. Nearly all majors also hold a corresponding minor that requires fewer courses or academic experiences than the major. Others—such as those in Sustainability, Cognitive and Brain Studies, or Museum Studies—offer unique viewpoints or represent fields and specializations that build on a student's major program. Each academic program page notes whether a major or minor is available, and requirements can be found in the academic catalog.

"I can still remember my freshmen orientation, the games we played, my orientation and peer leaders, and my first friends that I met and we are still friends till this day."
