Not exactly. For most universities, in your first year or even your second year you tend to complete your general education requirements. These are your englishes, your maths, sciences, histories, etc. After your first year, you get more into your major and your minor. You pretty much do them all at the same time. In the example of myself, I chose a minor in Economics and I've already began taking Economics classes because they were an option for my general education requirements. I'm also planning to minor in Finance but I have not begun taking classes for it. I have begun taking classe that work towards my major though, which is Marketing. I am currently a sophomore at a University.

There is no such thing as a minor degree. Typically, four year colleges and universities offer minors in many areas. However, a minor is not a degree nor does it meet the requirements of a degree. Students declare a major program of study (typically four years), and can choose to take with that major, a minor program of study. Still, the degree whether with or without a minor requires - in most cases - your years of study.

If you want to finish in 4 years, your minor would be a subject that complements your major. For instance, Art and English Lit might share the fine arts electives. If your major is in art and your minor is in biology, the electives that would contribute to the minor would be completely different, so you would be adding courses to your degree.
