Minor Concentration Requirements
The Minor in English requires students to take
six courses in the Department. Fulfillment
of the Writing Requirement is a prerequisite for upper-level
English courses. English 1, 2, 3, and 4 do not count towards
the Minor. The purpose of the minor is to allow students to
experiment widely or to follow a particular interest with some
concentration. Therefore each minor will be individual not only
in content but also in concept. To that end, all students are
expected to plan a coherent program of study that leads to breadth,
pursues a specialized interest, or combines these two objectives.
Whatever course of study they construct, students are encouraged
to include at least one course numbered below 100 and one above
100 and to consult with faculty members as they pursue their minors.
The following parameters apply to the minor in English:
- Students must receive a grade of C- or higher
in any course that they wish to count towards the
fulfillment of the minor.
- Only courses offered by the English Department or
cross-listed with an English Department registration
number can count for the English minor.
- ExCollege courses may not be counted towards the minor.
- No more than two transfer courses may be applied
towards the minor. These must be taken in an English department.
- Students may count a maximum of three creative
writing courses (defined as courses numbered English 0005-0016)
towards fulfillment of the minor.
The English Minor Declaration Form
must be signed by a full-time faculty member and submitted to
the English Department by April 15th of the student's senior year.
A printed copy of the student's unofficial transcript should
accompany the form.
