Help with choosing a minor?
So I've kind of had a rough go in college so far. I'm only a sophomore and so far I've changed my major 4 times (Pre-Med, Psychology, Med Tech and now Health Science) These changes have sort of set me back a bit and now I'm retaking similar classes to satisfy new program requirements. As for my future, as of now I want to be a Clinical Trial Coordinator at a research facility. What would be a better minor to go along with my Health Science major, Biology or Management? Also, which one may work better in case I change my major again in the future? I have heard a lot recently though that employers don't even look at minors, so maybe I'm fretting for nothing? I do have to choose one though to graduate. That's funny cause when I look up jobs on job search websites like indeed or monster, many of these types of jobs I'm looking in to require a bachelors. Maybe we're thinking of different careers here. I'm thinking of the person who writes the SOPs, informs participants, and complies the data to be analyzed by a statistician. Also, I have a 3.9 GPA. I don't really have trouble with classes, I'm just trying to find what I truly enjoy.

I'm afraid I have bad news for you, you're not likely to be a clinical trial co-ordinator with a generic health science degree. People who hold those positions are typically research scientists who have worked their way up the ranks. I suspect, however, based on your increasingly less strenuous majors, that you have a... More

Yes, those positions do exist, but realize that they can come and go, with the whims of grants and such (or presidential administrations... More
