The Minor in Literature, 18 total credits, offers students a great deal of flexibility and creates the opportunity to develop deep knowledge of a specific period, genre, or thematic. Nine credits are required; students must take ENG 100: Principles of Literary Analysis, and must choose two of the program’s major survey courses: ENG 105: Experiences in American Literature, or ENG 106: Experiences in British Literature; ENG 101: World Literature I, or ENG 102: World Literature II. The remaining 9 elective credits can be earned through completion of any literature course with an ENG prefix at the 200-level or higher. Students are encouraged to work closely with an advisor to construct a program of study that fits their interests and goals.
