English Minor


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs by Area: Majors and Minors

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.

Two electives in English, one of which must be in literature.


Students majoring in Communication and minoring in English may count one of their Communication courses towards the English minor.
