A minor in history?

Question:If I major in English, would History be a good minor? I may end up teaching, so I was thinking that the minor might allow me to get two teaching certs. But I'm also wondering if it would help in other potential careers. Any thoughts on that major/minor combination?

Answers:
You will get a better education if you minor in something that really interests you. It may not match your degree exactly, and it may not fit a future job description, but you will like it better, do better in it, think it is important, and integrate it into your future life.

My Major was Engineering; my Minor was Psychology. This puzzled both departments, but it worked for me, both then and for the thirty years since then.
Yeah, if you want to teach English and Social studies. I teach only English and I majored in Literature and minored in Writing.
