Minor in English
A minor in English allows students to explore literature and writing within a structured framework that focuses intellectual curiosity and meets extant student need. This minor should be intentionally combined with a major in another discipline to contribute to (1) a student's training in the critical practices of reading and writing, (2) the development of analytical skills, intellectual tools, and creativity that directly influence students' preparedness for professional life beyond the classroom, and (3) a formal credential for students interested in pursuing English courses as a substantive element in their undergraduate education.
