There are no eligibility criteria for students to register for a Minor in English. However, the student's ability to complete the minimum number of credits required to earn a Minor will depend on the availability of seats in the respective English courses. The department does its best to accommodate Minor students, but English Majors will always have priority for department courses, and the enrollment of non-Major students is at the discretion of the course Instructor. 

Minor requirement for students graduating in 2022 and later:

  • The student must complete a minimum of 6 courses from the English Department as University Wide Electives (UWE).
  • These 6 courses must include at least two "Core" English courses. The Core English courses are listed here.

Minor requirement for students graduating in 2019, 2020, and 2021:

  • The student must complete a minimum of 6 courses from the English Department as University Wide Electives (UWE).
  • These 6 courses must include at least one 300-level and one 400-level course.

The first opportunity for a student to officially register for a Minor in English is at the end of the 1st year. However, students can begin crediting courses that would count towards their Minor even before they officially register for it.

Important: students qualifying for a Minor in English must email the English department's UG Advisor in their 8th semester so that UG Advisor can verify the student's eligibility for the Minor and forward that information to the Registrar's Office.
