Choosing an Appropriate Minor

[Post a Follow Up] [Post to this category]

Hello! I am a student at the university of Illinois. I am majoring in natural resources and environmental science with a concentration in fish and wildlife conservation. I would like to one day become a wildlife biologist, preferably doing some sort of research. I am having a very tough time trying to choose a minor. What minor(s) would strengthen my ability to land such a career? Is there one better suited to a career in research? Any advice is very helpful. Thanks!
