The minor in English Language and Literature invites students to explore the literatures of the world, and offers students opportunities to increase their critical and creative writing skills. A minor in English also will help you cultivate the critical thinking and reading skills needed for many professions. Students choose 15 credits of English courses (beyond those taken to satisfy General Education requirements). Students should plan their program in consultation with a faculty advisor in the School of English, Philosophy and Humanities. At least four courses must be taken at the intermediate level or above.
