General Literature Minor

The minor in English allows students to delve into the broad offerings of English courses, from literature, to language, to culture. The minor is structured loosely to allow students to explore their own interests. The minor goes well with virtually any other major, including history, psychology, math, and biology.

Our classes help you develop valuable skills, including reading critically, analyzing logically, and communicating effectively. Thus a minor in English Literature is an excellent choice for a career in teaching, writing, journalism, law, medicine, public relations, advertising, editing, and publishing.

The minor requires 21 credits in English, 12 of which must be in upper division coures, including either ENGL 3307 or ENGL 3311 (which has ENGL 2211 as a prerequisite).
