Literature minors can spend a January term visiting the United Kingdom through Literary London.



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 Early English, Renaissance, Restoration and Eighteenth Century, Romantic, Victorian and Modern British Literature, American Literature to 1865, from 1865-1945, and from 1945 to the Present. You’ll consider the impact of race and ethnicity and delve deeply into various genres of 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.
