English Minor in Literature (15 Credit Hours)

A minor in English literature offers students in other majors the opportunity to broaden their knowledge of literature and its diverse genres, perspectives, and historical and political contexts. The distribution of coursework enables students to enrich their experience of literature by engaging with diverse works of cultural and aesthetic value, contending with important philosophical questions, reimagining histories of past times and places, and fostering their own critical and creative voices.

Minors are encouraged to participate in the larger culture of the English program — e.g., scholarly lectures, readings, roundtables — and to work for the college’s literary magazine, Sketch.
