At my institution, we are supposed to complete pre-requisite courses required for minor in a particular area and then apply for a minor degree in it. At this point I haven't applied for one, just because I couldn't take up the pre-req courses until now, but I definitely intend to in future. Is it appropriate for me state the minor degree under my current major in my CV if I have not officially started pursuing it?
Follow up question, should I even mention my minor degree at this point if it's not relevant to the research position I'm applying for? I believe that a minor degree rather than the area itself demonstrates students in a positive light of the pursuing what they like.
