<p>If a student majors in English, Communications, History or, International Studies, is it encouraging to have coding skills/web design skills or a minor in a technical field?</p>

<p>It certainly can help get a job after graduation…</p>

<p>It depends on what you career plans are, and also whether you have any real technological talent.</p>

<p>If your math and technological talents are weak, you probably will not be happy practicing those skills even if you take some courses or study them as a minor.</p>

<p>On the other hand, if these talents are reasonably good, then it could be a benefit careerwise. At a minimum, you would be able to communicate well with technological professionals.</p>

<p>The economy, worldwide, is becoming more and more technological. It certainly would be a benefit to have some understanding of technology, even if it is not you primary focus.</p>
