All English Studies Department Minors


Students planning a minor in Linguistics, Literature or Writing need to be aware of prerequisites for upper-division courses. Students with a major in one of these areas and a minor in another need to plan with an adviser additional classes in the minor to replace courses taken in the common core. See the Advising Guide page for a list of advisors as well as helpful hints for pursuing your degree.
