English Minor Program

The minor program in English offers students who take pleasure in literature and imaginative writing the opportunity to study these areas beyond introductory courses. Students may choose an emphasis in Literature, Writing, or Teaching.

  • Like the major, the English minor with an emphasis in Literature exposes students to American, British, and World literature, while giving students the flexibility to pursue their own literary interests.
  • The emphasis in Writing gives students the chance to practice their craft in an encouraging and challenging workshop setting where they grow as writers of poetry, fiction, or creative nonfiction.
  • Minors are also available for Middle Childhood/Early Adolescence and Early Adolescence/Adolescence teaching certification in English.
