Think critically, analyze challenging texts, and express new ideas persuasively and creatively
Interested in majoring in English? We offer two career-driven programs designed to prepare you with the critical thinking and communication skills that today's employers look for.
What is an English minor?
The English minor will introduce you to the history and literature of the English language while you also learn critical thinking skills and how to write clearly and persuasively. You’ll learn the art and science of words, allowing you to expand your imaginative potential and solve real-world problems. Combine a minor in English with any other major to improve your critical thinking, communication, writing and research skills.
