Minor in English

Students majoring in any other discipline may minor in English.

There are several advantages for obtaining this minor. First, students expand their knowledge of literature written in English, deepening the liberal arts portion of their undergraduate education. Second, in the courses that the Department of English offers, writing skills are emphasized, so students should learn to develop complex and sophisticated arguments through the analysis of literary work. The training students receive in these courses can prepare them for careers in which writing and editing are of the greatest significance, or in which critical thinking skills are valued.
