English Minor


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs by Area

The minor in English aims to help students read literature with greater expertise and appreciation and develop more fully their written and oral expression. Students will take a course that introduces them to the formal study of literature; two English literature period courses that cover canonical works within a historical context; and three electives that look closely at a genre, an author, or a specific aspect of a literary period. These courses will acquaint the student with a variety of literary works and periods and help them discern literature’s intrinsic aesthetic and humanistic values. They will also provide ample opportunities for critical analysis and writing.
