Minor Course Requirements

English Minor Course Requirements

Avila University offers a flexible English minor that affords students in fields other than English the opportunity to pursue their interest in writing, critical thinking, and analysis. Students who take the minor will develop skills that will enhance and broaden their career possibilities. By providing coursework in composition, creative writing, literary analysis, 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 writing requirement has been successfully completed. English minors must earn a grade of “C” or higher in all courses taken in the minor.
