Department of English, College of Humanities and Social Sciences
The study of English offers students the opportunity to study and work with texts that have shaped, and been shaped by, the English language. We offer a diverse spectrum of classes ranging from antiquity to the twenty-first century and covering a wide variety of topics in literature, media, composition, and language studies. English courses encompass and explore multiple cultural traditions, allowing students to cultivate skill in critical thinking, creative expression, close reading, persuasive writing and effective speaking.
Courses taken for credit in minor programs may not be counted toward English majors.
Why Consider an English Minor?
An English minor provides you with three essential tools for success in a wide range of careers: the ability to read critically, write clearly and specifically, and understand the ideas and experiences that shape the histories of our local, national and global communities. Employers and professions of all kinds value such abilities and seek out those who have them.
