Minor in English

Students may seek either an academic major or minor in English.

The English minor complements the skills the student gains in his or her major discipline by providing exposure to literary analysis, critical thinking and reading, and the study of the relationship of literature to contemporary intellectual issues.

Requirements for the Minor

A minor in English requires the completion of 15 credits of English coursework. All ENGL courses apply. It is recommended that students take ENGL 240 and 303 as the first courses in the minor (if they have not already applied the courses toward other degree requirements).

Courses already applied toward other degree requirements (e.g., major or general education) may not be applied toward the minor. At least 9 credits must be earned in upper-level courses (numbered 300 or above). Prerequisites apply for all courses.
