Literature Minor

For the Love of Literature

A minor in Literature will broaden your worldview and increase your appreciation for literary works from various eras. You will explore the works of Shakespearean, Restoration, and Romantic thinkers and discover what makes them relevant to Modern America and contemporary world literature. English students are encouraged to study literature in England during the January term Literary London trip.

The critical analysis and cultural awareness skills you develop from examining literature will cross over into valuable traits required of many careers. A Literature minor is ideal for Education majors, Business majors, Professional Writing majors, Strategic Communication majors, and many others.

Students majoring in English with a Literature concentration cannot add a Literature minor.
