Minor in English

Minoring in English affords students an opportunity to select advanced coursework in literature and language that reflects their interests and develop skills that enhance coursework in related fields. 

English minors complete at least 15 hours of course work in English or Folklore. (Minors interested in teaching middle school complete 18 hours.) Students can select courses from any of our concentrations and build a unique program of study. At least 12 hours of minor coursework must be taken at the 3000-level or above, and some upper-division courses may require students to take prerequisites. Students taking more than 15 hours in courses in English may count the additional hours toward their electives or may consider completing a double major. (A grade of C or higher is required in all courses counting toward the minor.)
