Completing a minor in Chemistry in addition to your major may broaden your career opportunities. A journalism major will find it easer to cover science related stories, a business major may more likely be hired by a chemical company, a criminal justice major will find it easier to communicate with forensic experts, an environmental science major may find it easier to analyze chemical data, a biology major may become more competitive for entry into a Molecular Biology graduate program. These are just some examples where basic knowledge of chemistry can augment your professional aspirations.
