An undergraduate minor in English literature would help students in a variety of majors to represent significant expertise they have accrued in this field on their transcripts. The structure of the minor will also help direct students with a significant interest in English literature to sequences and sets of courses that are designed to develop their interest; they can take a mini-curriculum rather than just a smattering of electives.

The minor consists of 18 credits and comprises the following courses.
