The short answer is, so you can get a degree! The longer answer is that it allows you to develop two interests or fields of specialty. For example, I have a psychology major and a writing minor. The psychology really helps me with writing bio articles and non-fiction. College is not just job training. One purpose is to increase general knowledge, so you'll be able to look at things from many different perspectives. Many, many people end up in their minor field, or in an industry unrelated to either their major or minor. But, the knowledge and critical thinking skills they gained in college contribute to their success. To make yourself more marketable after college. For example, if you majored in business marketing - ok. If you minored in music, or art you would show a skill set that would also be useful (making gingles/commercials) that others may not have.

It is my understanding that no, you don't. On your degree it should be noted that you have a minor in whatever, but you won't get something separate.

A college professor would need to have completed college with at least a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree, although there are exceptions. One would also likely have taken many courses in the subject(s) in which he or she plans to teach. In addition, a college professor has often spent many years working in his or her area of specialty before ever considering becoming a professor.
