Students whose career goals involve extensive contact with the public, including majors in business, communications, engineering, human development and family studies, nursing, and psychology would benefit from a Minor in Sociology. It is a means toward greater understanding of the complex social and cultural world that shapes their future clients' and customers' life experiences, needs, and concerns.

Many people employed in the criminal justice system have a Minor in Criminal Justice. Opportunities for students majoring in the biological sciences and chemistry may find opportunities available in crime laboratories where scientific techniques are used in the study of criminal evidence. The areas of wildlife/fisheries and park/land management also serve as areas of potential employment.
