Minor in English

The minor in English requires 24 semester credit hours. Students who earn a grade of “B” or higher in the first sophomore course may elect to take an advanced literature course in lieu of the second sophomore course. No more than 6 hours of sophomore literature may count toward the English minor. Minors must take advanced courses from at least two different groups (Group A-British Literature, Group B-American Literature, Group C-World Literature, or Group D-Forms, Language, and Writing) and are encouraged to complete one course that centers on genre, theme, or theory.
