Question by Vito Perez: If I wanted to major in Political Science but wanted a minor on physics, which university should I go?
I want to minor specifically on quantum mechanics. In fact, I don’t plan to take an occupation involving physics, more on the lines of politics.
Also, it would be best if that university had a policy debate team.

You have a pretty strange direction for yourself but an interesting one none the less. I would recommend the University of Oregon. I’ve actually attended there and both of those programs there are top notch.

Question by bebefunfun: is it good to do cognitive science minor with econ major (accounting minor) if i want to go to law school?
I know that cognitive science involves a lot about psychology, neuroscience, and linguistics, and I figured that it would be helpful for critical thinking in law too and I’m kind of interested in that. But my other concern is I’m not good at science and will doing a minor in cognitive science pull down my chances of applying to law school in terms of getting a bad GPA?

Best answer:

Answer by Trent
Law schools will look at your GPA, but this will be normalized and you will be compared to other people in your school and with your major. So while you might have a 3.5 with your major at School A, you will not really be compared with a person at School B who has a 3.8 in a different major. That being said, your GPA is still really important but I think it has more to do with your major than your minor. I also don’t think that any particular major or minor gives you an advantage once you are in school, especially not in your first year. Once you can take elective courses your background might help you. For example you mention an accounting minor, if you take tax law classes then your accounting knowledge may help you.

Question by Brian Butler: What can I do with a double major in Political Science/Psychology and a minor in Physics?
I was looking into grad school to obtain a PhD in Neuroscience, I would have done my undergrad in Neuroscience but my university doesn’t offer a bachelor degree in Neuroscience. I also have considered double majoring in Physics/Psychology and minoring in Political Science. What can I do with these degrees?

Best answer:

Answer by eri
Well, if you don’t go to grad school, physics would be useful for finding a job. Social psychology majors make an average of 29k mid-career. It’s not the most useful degree.

Question by .: Is it better to minor in math or computer science for a physics degree?
Which will improve my ability to get hired and the chance of a better job in the Air Force?

Best answer:

Answer by Gorzar
You should be able to get a good answer to this from an Air Force recruiter. A lot will depend on what you are planning to do with the degree. But all other things considered equal, I would go with the CS minor. Demonstrating competence with computers is always a positive on a resume.

Question by : If I’m a Pharmaceutical Science major, is it any good to minor in neuroscience?
I have interest in neuroscience, but I don’t know if minoring in that will benefit me at all. I ultimately want to become a pharmacist. I know you can major in anything to get into pharm school and between pharmaceutical science and psychology, psychology sounds more fun. It’s a little too late to switch now since I’m a junior anyways.

Best answer:

Answer by Phil
Most likely it’s too late to switch because colleges usually give you till your junior year to declare your major. If you are talking about switching minors, you might be able to do that because it requires less course work than a major. You are more likely to find a job with a degree in Pharmaceutical science than with psychology. Either way you’re going to have to get either a masters degree or an MD.

Question by sinamore1966: What is the penalty for a minor not completing alcohol awareness couse?
My son took alcohol to school. In Texas. Was fined 1.00 and told to complete alcohol awareness course within 90 days. No courses available locally. Online courses very expensive. DADAP courses cheaper but have to ask judge if acceptable. Community service would be ideal instead, but judge advised that she is still looking for a community service location and one may not be found.
Any advise will be greatly appreciated!!!!
He is 14 years old.

Best answer:

Answer by djr92
If you do not take the course, your son could be charged with contempt for not following a court order. This could incur community service, fines, or time in a juvenile facility in addition to still being required to complete the course.

However, there are over 500 juvenile alcohol awareness classes in TX and I highly doubt that none are in your area.

Go to http://www.dshs.state.tx.us/offendered/oe_rosters.shtm and scroll down to “Alcohol Education Program for Minors” and you can pull up the list.

Question by jeff s: Behavioral neuroscience major with a minor in business?
I’m thinking about majoring in behavioral neuroscience but also want to have some sort of a background in business. My plans are to attend medical school after my 4 years at a college but would like to have some business background…

To anyone that has tried this or knows anything about it, do you think this is a smart decision? And is it possible to minor in something that is in a different school, such as if my major is in the College of Arts and Sciences but I want to minor in something in the School of Business.

Best answer:

Answer by Dancing D
It won’t hurt your chances. You can definitely do minors in different colleges. I did a dance minor with a biochem major.
