The minor in Literature requires 18 credit hours of Literature courses from the English and Creative Writing Department. The 18 credit hours are composed of any combination of six literature courses that meet the following two guidelines: a maximum of two courses (six to seven credit hours) from 100-level literature offerings and a minimum of one course (three credit hours) from 300- or 400-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 and Television Arts, 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.
