Submission + - Would a Minor degree in CS be worth pursuing?

daddyrief writes: "I am currently a freshman majoring in Computer Science, and I am beginning to rethink my choice of major. I am not very good at math (I've never been, even in high school) and these college-level math classes are really getting to me. To be perfectly honest, I'm not sure I can make it. If I switched to a toss-up choice between Journalism/Political Science/English majors, would a minor in CS help me in any (real-world) way?

I suppose my real questions are: with a minor in CS, could I ever attain a programming job on a relatively decent step of the corporate ladder? Would just a minor be enough to qualify me in the eyes of potential employers? Personal experiences are definitely welcome..."
