The English minor is designed (1) to provide students with solid fundamentals in writing, reading, analytical skills, and literary knowledge and (2) to allow them a wide range of choice in concentrations and electives grounded in those fundamentals, all of which can lead to many fruitful occupations.
The number of units required for the English minor is 21 units.
English does not permit double use of courses in this minor with any other major or second minor.
