English Minor


The courses required for a minor in English provide a selection of advanced writing courses and a comprehensive survey of literature and critical theory. The 18 credit hour minor in English complements all other degree programs in that the course work (a) enhances critical thinking skills, (b) increases general knowledge, (c) fosters cultural awareness and respect for differences, and (d) expands literacy (reading and writing) and oral communication skills. Thus, students receiving the minor should prove successful and competitive both in their academic and professional careers.
