Literature Minor

The English minor—newly named the Literature minor—provides students with the opportunity to design a five-course curriculum suited to their interests. Do you have an interest in different kinds of literature--American, British, and/or world literature? Do you have an interest in a combination of drama and creative writing? Would you like to focus on literary criticism and theory? Are there five courses in our department that would supplement your major in some way? Do you have an interest in acquiring advanced writing and editing skills--which business leaders across the country say are a top consideration for them when they are hiring? Are you pre-med or pre-law? (Medical and Law schools look very favorably on students with literature backgrounds.) Do you just plain love literature?  Whatever your reasons, we welcome you to the English/Literature minor.
