English literature minors study the major authors, works, genres, and literary movements, approaching them both analytically and historically.

Course Requirements​

  • Six courses in English literature.  At least three courses must be at the 300-level, and no more than one course may be at the 100-level.  ENG 220 READING POETRY and ENG 221 READING PROSE are strongly recommended but not required; these courses are prerequisites to many 300-level English courses.  

Students majoring in English or minoring in Creative Writing are restricted from earning this minor.
