Literature Minor


The minor in Literature requires 18 hours of literature courses in the English Department beyond the three hours taken for the Humanities/Literature requirement in the LAS Core Curriculum. The 18 hours are composed of any combination of six literature courses that meet the following two guidelines: a maximum of two courses (six to seven hours) from 1000- level literature offerings and a minimum of one course (three hours) from 3000- or 4000-level literature offerings. Within these guidelines, the minor in Literature offers a flexible course of study that students can tailor to meet their specific needs and interests. Students from Cinema Art + Science, for example, might choose courses such as Literature on Film, Movies and Myth: The Goddess, and Topics in Literature: Spike Lee and August Wilson. Creative Writing students might select courses such as the English Authors, American Authors, or World Literature sequences complemented by courses on various periods in the American or British novel. Theatre students might be interested in a minor in Literature based on classes such as Introduction to Drama, Introduction to Shakespeare, Shakespeare: Tragedies, and Modern American Drama. Students who wish to minor in Literature must have a declared major in an arts and communications area.
