English, Minor

Offered in: Chicago

Students majoring in other disciplines may choose to minor in English. Although not as extensive as the major curriculum, the minor will also develop cultural knowledge and critical communication skills that complement a student’s work in any of the other academic majors in the university.

Requirements

This minor sequence (six courses) includes two courses from the British and American survey sequence (ENG 210 BRITISH LITERATURE TO 1789, ENG 211 BRITISH LITERATURE 1789 TO PRESENT, ENG 212 AMERICAN LITERATURE TO 1865, ENG 213 AMERICAN LITERATURE 1865-PRESENT), both of the analytical interpretation courses (ENG 220 INTRODUCTION TO LITERARY ANALYSIS and ENG 221 TEXTS AND CONTEXTS), and two electives at the 300-level. Students should choose 300-level courses based on the foundation they have established in the surveys they have chosen, in consultation with an English faculty advisor.

Students must maintain a 2.5 GPA in the minor, and must earn grades of C- or higher in all coursework taken for the minor.
