English, Minor College of Letters & Science

The Minor Program

Pursuing a minor in English allows students to develop their abilities to read critically and to write clearly while enjoying the pleasures that great literature has to offer. To complete the minor, students take five upper division courses, at least four of which focus on literature, film, or other media. Choices within the curriculum are unlimited by historical period, and can include a course in creative writing. All minors have the opportunity to work with distinguished writers, critics, scholars, and teachers.

Career Alternatives

Graduates have found the minor to be an excellent complement to their training in other fields, helping to demonstrate their writing and critical thinking skills to employers and graduate schools.
