sounds strange?


I can classify my volunteer work two parts.

See example:

Also I'm studying Business administration and Early childhood education as a minor at Keimyung University.

You may not need to use 'also' at all - if you are describing your professional experience, the reader will be able to see that you are talking about the next activity in your CV. If you want to keep the 'also', I'd recommend changing it to 'I'm also studying...' to avoid creating a dangling phrase at the start of your sentence (which can look a little messy).


A 'minor' can be a person who is not yet an adult, as well as the minor component of a course.  The way your sentence is phrased now is slightly confusing because 'as a minor' could describe you (the subject of the sentence) as well as the course. I'd suggest that you avoid this ambiguity if possible.


As Tony says, we don't know which courses you're majoring/minoring in. But, if you like my suggestions here, you could use one of the following formulations (with Tony's capitalization).


I'm [also - optional] studying at Keimyung University, majoring in [Course A] and minoring in [Course B].

I'm [also - optional] studying at Keimyung University, with a major in [Course A] and a minor in [Course B].


I hope that this helps you.

Introductory statements should be follwed by a comma.

Names and Titles are "Proper Nouns", and as such should always be capitalized.

I was not sure if you were majoring in BE with a minor in ECE, your sentence did not make that clear, so it is an assumption I used in re-writing the statement.


"Also, I'm studying Business Administration at Keimyung University, with Early Childhood Education as a minor."
