Literature Minor: 21 hours: 6 required course and one English elective
Interested in reading and discussing great works with experts in British and American literature? The Literature Minor complements a range of majors and career paths, including Communications, Creative Writing, History, Pre-Law, and Theater. By taking the six required courses, students gain a foundation in British, American, and World literature. The one elective course gives students the opportunity to tailor their minor to their interests. The English department’s elective courses cover such fascinating subjects as the tales of King Arthur, Young Adult novels, and African-American literature.
Minors work one-on-one with English department faculty advisors, who guide them through their courses of study. They also participate in the department’s annual Chutney Literary Conference and its essay contests. Furthermore, minors are eligible to qualify for UE’s chapter of Sigma Tau Delta, an international English honor society.
