Minor in English

The Department offers a minor in English that requires 18 credits of upper-level courses in a program planned with an English faculty advisor. The goal of the minor is to give students not simply a collection of courses, but a coherent experience with English courses chosen to suit their needs and interests.

The minimum number of credits (exclusive of the University's Core curriculum) required for the English minor: 18. No more than a total of 6 credit hours can be earned at the 200-level. A grade of "C-" or better is required.

Each English minor program must meet the following specific requirements beyond College Writing or waivers:

  • ENG 245 Introduction to Literary Studies (3 credits)
  • Three ENG 300- or 400-level historical period courses (one must focus on a period before 1800 and one on a period after 1800) (9 credits)
  • Two additional ENG electives (200-, 300-, or 400-level) to complete the 18 credits required for the minor (6 credits)
