Minor in English Curriculum

Our Minor in English is a great complement to a major in a science, social science, or professional field. With just two required courses, it is our least restrictive program and invites students who enjoy reading, discussion, and writing to deepen their understanding of literature and writing without delaying progress toward degree completion.


A student with a major in another department may minor in English with the permission of the English Department Chair. Eighteen hours of approved course work is required for the Minor in English and will include ENG 334: Methods in Literary and Cultural Studies and its prerequisite, ENG 206: Introduction to Literary Studies. 

Note: the department encourages students to take advantage of all courses that it administers and recognizes ENG 110 English Composition and SPC 100 Effective Public Speaking as electives toward fulfilling the credit requirement for the minor.
