School of Education – Minors Expand Opportunities with Liberty University’s Online Education Minors

Adding a minor is a great way to get additional expertise in a specialized subject for either personal interest or career growth. Your major will be the main focus of your degree, but this secondary area of study can expand your career options by adding to your educational background, often without lengthening your program.

Liberty’s minors still allow you to take 100% of your courses online. With a minor, you can gain an additional focus for your degree and stay connected with your family, church, and community while studying from the comfort of your home or office.
