There’s nothing minor about choosing a secondary discipline to complement your major bachelor’s degree program. A minor adds another layer of professional knowledge, looks great on your resume and helps set you up for success in your career. Averett University is excited to introduce two new minors to our long list of academic offerings: Homeland Security, and Cyber Security and Computer Forensics, two fields where talented people are in high demand.

You can minor in Homeland Security by taking six courses for 18 credit hours in topics like criminal justice, terrorism and legal and constitutional issues in homeland security. Like other law enforcement fields of study, it will give you a solid foundation for a career where you can make a positive impact in the community and on people’s lives.

If technology is your thing, you might want to consider AU’s Cyber Security and Computer Forensics minor. Courses you can take to accumulate 18 credit hours include digital forensics analysis, computer and network security and IT infrastructure. This is another hot job market, so having these extra credentials could give you an edge over other candidates.

Like we said, a minor is a great way to expand your skills to make yourself more attractive to employers. But those aren’t the only benefits. Getting a minor shows discipline, rewards your willingness to put in extra work to get ahead and positions you for new opportunities down the road. Now that’s major.
