The study of Women’s Literature includes the study of literature written by women and analysis of the representation of the wide range of issues that shape their lives and work, including but not limited to the construction of gender, sexuality, age, race and class.

Courses taken for credit in minor programs may not be counted toward English majors.

Why Consider a Women’s Literature Minor?

A Women’s Literature Minor provides you with essential tools for success in a wide range of careers: the ability to read critically, write clearly and specifically, and synthesize information and arguments drawn from diverse disciplines and perspectives as a means of interpreting a single text. Employers and professions of all kinds value such abilities and look for those who have them.
