Why should I add a MINOR or CERTIFICATE to my studies?
Study in an area about which you’re passionate – Perhaps you’re majoring in one field, but you’ve had a longstanding interest in another. Or perhaps you’ve discovered a new area of study since arriving at Siena. You don’t need to set that passion aside: add it as a minor or certificate!
Add depth to your studies – Choosing a minor or certificate that complements your major can help you to deepen your understanding of a specific aspect of the field.
Add breadth to your studies – You might want to add a minor or certificate in a field that, in combination with your major, gets you started in something that you’d like to pursue further in your career or in graduate school.
