English Minor Course Requirements

The English Minor offers students in fields other than English the opportunity to pursue their interest in writing, critical thinking, and literary analysis. Students who take the minor will develop skills that will enhance and broaden their career possibilities. By providing course work in creative writing, literary analysis, and composition and rhetoric, the minor encourages students to shape a curriculum that develops their talents and helps them achieve their career goals.

The candidate for the English Minor must complete 18 hours after their Core I level writing requirement or its equivalent has been successfully completed. English minors must receive a grade of "C" or higher in all courses taken in the minor.
