Minors

Our department houses four academic minors.

The Minor in English

As a minor English literary studies enrich other majors, such as History, Philosophy, Art, Theatre, Communication, Political Science, and Economics, to name a few. The English minor refines discussion, critical reading, and writing skills valued in many professions, including business, law, and medicine. The English minor also complements students’ majors in business and the sciences by adding a humanistic dimension to their undergraduate education. 

Requirements for minoring in English

Journalism Minor

The Journalism Program is centered in the Journalism Minor and has two overlapping missions. The first is to provide professional training in journalism to aspiring professional journalists. The second, equally important, is to familiarize liberal arts students of varying majors and goals with the way journalism works – what it does for them, and in some cases, to them. The minor requirements are flexible according to the needs of the individual student.
