Minor - English


A minor in English enriches students' appreciation of literature and teaches students to think analytically and logically (in oral and written expression) and to appreciate the importance of using language correctively and effectively. An English minor is an excellent preparation for almost any professional occupation, including teaching, law, medicine, administration, and government-related work.

Course Requirements

A minor in English consists of 21 hours of English courses, including Engl 101 and 102, 6 hours of 200-level literature survey courses (Engl 221, 222, 223, 224, 225, 226), and an additional 9 hours of English courses at the 300-level or above.
