Students who wish to minor in English should discuss their intention with the department’s director of undergraduate studies, and inform the Office of Academic Advising.
To complete a minor in English, students must take 060.107 Introduction to Literary Study (ordinarily within one year of declaring the minor), as well as six additional courses in the department.
At least two and no more than three of these must be lecture (200-level) courses. Expository Writing may not be counted toward the minor. 100-level courses may be taken but may not be counted toward the minor. A maximum of one course offered by another department but cross-listed with English may be counted toward the English minor. In addition, at least one of the six courses must be a pre-1800 course.
Courses for a minor must be taken for a grade, and a minimum grade of C- is required.
