How to List a Minor on a Resume


You can correctly list a minor on a resume in many different ways, but it is common practice to keep the minor and major listed on one line to keep the presentation brief. The ultimate goal of any resume is to give a brief overview of yourself and your previous accomplishments. A minor is often a great piece of relevant information, especially when your minor is related to the job for which you are applying.

  • Locate where your major is listed, probably in the "Education" section. The specification "Major:" usually precedes your listed major and is in bold print.

  • Place a semicolon and a space after your listed major, in that order. You do not need a space between the semicolon and the listed major.

  • Type "Minor:" in bold print. This makes it stand out from the rest of the sentence, while also creating a consistent style when the "Major:" identifier is in print, too.

  • Type your minor in regular print. This indicates your minor in a way that is both brief and helpful to the potential employer.
