Majoring in chemistry, psychology, or engineering doesn't mean you can't engage deeply and richly with the cultural record of the last six centuries. Students in the English Minor learn to analyze a diversity of literary texts and to cultivate life-long active reading habits, leading to greater cultural awareness and a better sense of the values that have governed and will continue to govern our human condition. The critical skills acquired through the minor will be useful to students' personal and professional lives after graduation. Please feel free to set up an appointment with English Advisor Steve Kunert to determine if the minor would be a useful supplement to your major field of study.
