Why Minor in English?

If you love to read, the English minor is the perfect complement to any major.  We offer a broad number of courses in Western, British, and American literature, as well as courses such as Classics of Christian Literature or Five Great Novels.  Electives are flexible, allowing you to focus on the kinds of literature (and some writing courses) which appeal to your interests.
