English Minor at Westminster College

For requirements, please visit the course catalog.

Why get an English Minor?

The Department of English Language and Literature offers a major program of study leading to a Bachelor of Arts in English, as well as a minor program of study in English. Lower-level courses in the department support the college's General Education Program. By studying British, American, and world literatures, students who major or minor in English learn to read closely, to think critically, and to write clearly.

There is three areas of emphasis: literary criticism, creative writing, or journalism/publication. Students who meet the requirements are invited to complete an Honors Sequence in their area of emphasis. Students may also complete an English education major by consultation with the English and Education departments. A major in English provides a solid foundation for the business world, law school, journalism, education, or graduate study in any field.
