In the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical Oklahoma! Aunt Eller tries to bring harmony to the state by singing about how "the farmer and the cowman should be friends." She points out how they can accomplish much more by working together than by competing or working at cross-purposes.

To that end, then, perhaps we might think about how a minor in Philosophy could fit with a major in Environmental Science or how a major in English could benefit from a minor in Information Systems. The possibilities are endless!
