A literature and the arts minor shows that you are well-rounded, well-read and can talk about big ideas in an engaging way. If you are a STEM, business or pre-professional major, a literature and the arts minor will set you apart from others with similar degrees by signaling the breadth and depth of your education. It will prepare you for the ever-changing modern world by giving you the skills needed to adapt quickly as jobs change. That’s one of the perks of being a passionate lifelong learner.
Like a humanities major, a literature minor has practical applications. For example, did you know that according to The Princeton Review, humanities majors score better on the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT) than biology majors do? Literature is all about using words effectively, and medical schools are looking for applicants who can communicate well with patients.
In short, a literature and the arts minor will prepare you for life.
