Choosing a College Minor


MinorMarylyn writes:

I’m a college student on the verge of declaring a major hotel and restaurant management; yet I’m unsure of a minor that best fits this major.

I’m not sure if this is true but I heard that graphic communication is a good minor.

Is there anything else?


The Career Doctor responds:
Let me start by saying that the best people to ask your question to are your professors and any former managers at any internships you may have completed.

Having said that and after conducting a little informal research I would have to say one of the best minors would be computer technology/systems.

Technology plays a major role in hotel/restaurant management. Other minors that make sense are communications marketing and management. Still more minors mentioned include psychology and sociology (since it’s a big people business).
