Does anyone know what minor degree is? is it something like associate degree? what is the difference between a minor degree and a major degree?

Hi,

I don't know these terms.

However, I believe that in N. America, students taking their first degree normally study two (or more) subjects. Perhaps this is related to your question?

eg My minor subject was economics, and my major was (or I majored in) political science.

We also speak of first degrees / undergraduate degrees versus higher degrees / postgraduate degrees.

Best wishes, Clive
I have a minor Emotion: smile

Your major is the area in which you primarily studied, in which you took most of your classes. Some universities will have minors and will set out the requirements for qualifying for a minor, just as they do for your primary degree. For example, five classes or 15 credits within a curriculum. This means that although you did not take as many classes in that subject as you did your major, you still devoted enough time and effort to qualify for recognition of some degree of expertise in that area.

So... my undergraduate degree was a bachelor's of science in communications with a psychology minor, and my graduate degree is a master's of business administration. Probably some of these should be capitalized, but I'm tired.
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
Thanks guys!

Grammer Geek, I think your explanation was the one I was looking ;-) .

I'm not tired at all, and I still don't know when they should be capitalized, or if it even makes a difference.
I hope you get some rest and pursue into Doctorate Degree

Hi,

Hmmm, I'm not sure if you are joking with us here. Emotion: big smile

I assume you realize than an English sentence that does not start with a capital letter is incorrect, as is a sentence that does not capitalize the pronoun 'I'.

Some of our learners really don't realize that such writing is incorrect, and can result in exam failure and other negative consequences. Emotion: crying

Hi, an associate degree offered by a university to graduates of college if they attend night school classes at the university. Its mostly referred to as a collaborative degree between a university and a local college. A minor is pretty much a unit of study on the side, sort of. For example i am majoring in Electrical Engineering, but i am also minoring in French, meaning i am taking accredited courses towards a french degree/diploma.
