Minors are a secondary area of academic focus.

This can be helpful if you have several areas you’d like to study but don’t want to do a double major. A minor can complement your main course of study by enhancing the value of your major, helping you to find an area of specialization within your major. Or, your minor can just be something you enjoy and want to know more about. Some degrees require a minor. 

An Esports minor is a great addition if you are interested in exploring careers within the Esports industry such as marketing, management, event organization, game development, or any other related fields. Explore the growing industry of competitive gaming and the aspects of eSports beyond playing games.
