The English department offers four different minors:
Creative Writing Minor
The Creative Writing Minor allows students to work deeply in one genre (fiction, nonfiction or poetry) while also gaining familiarity and practice with the other two genres.
Teaching English as a Second Language
The Teaching English as a Second Language minor will give students an introduction to and overview of the skills and methods necessary to teach English to native speakers of other languages. It’s useful both for students who would like to teach overseas, as well as teachers who may work with domestic students whose native language is not English.
Professional Writing Minor
The Professional Writing Minor introduces students to writing for a broad range of audiences and purposes. Students will work in many different genres, from traditional written genres like memos and usability reports to multimodal genres like podcasts and video editorials.
English Literature Minor
The English Literature Minor is designed for students in other disciplines who enjoy literature and want to gain an understanding of literary history as well as practice in analytical thinking and writing.
