Declare Your Minor

Why Add the Minor in English?

Want to enrich your resume with enhanced skills in writing, oral communication, critical analysis, and research methods? Or just wish to spend more time reading literature, examining film and media, or writing your own creative fiction, poetry, or prose? The English Department offers two different minors that can be a great addition to your degree program.

In survey after survey, prospective employers complain that many of today’s graduating students lack the skills in writing and presentation that English degree holders typically have. Whether you are going into a scientific field, a health or medical career, business, or one of the professions, an English Minor demonstrates to future employers or graduate programs that you have the broad preparation to succeed.
