Minor - English


A minor in English not only enriches students' appreciation of literature and engages them in cultural debate but also helps develop crucial skills in analytical thinking and clear, persuasive expression both in speech and in writing. An English minor is an ideal gateway for careers that emphasize communication and critical thinking, including law, business, journalism, public service, and education.

Course Requirements

A minor in English consists of 18 hours of English courses, no more than 6 hours of which can be literature survey courses (Eng 220, 221, 222, 223, 224, 225, or 226). Students must complete at least 9 hours at the 300 level or above, including approved electives taught outside the department: Clc 303, 304, 305, 307, 308, 309, 333, 368; Lin 303, 304, 305, 506, 510, 511, 520. The discontinued Engl 101, 102, and 250 may not be counted toward the minor. Students cannot count both Eng 198 and 199 towards the minor.
