Minors and Concentrations

The Department of English grants an eleven-course Major in English and a six-course Minor in English. In addition, it offers three specialized Minors in the fields of Creative Writing, Professional Writing, and Irish Studies. Students who major in English can complete Concentrations in these same areas by fulfilling the same requirements as the Minor. The Minor allows non-majors to engage in a focused study of English; a Concentration allows students to add coherence and depth to their programs of study as English Majors. Successful completion of a Minor or Concentration is recorded on the student’s official university transcript.
