English Undergraduate Minor

The courses listed below satisfy the College Reasoning and Discourse (CRD) requirement and do not, therefore, count as part of the credit hours for an English minor.

English minors have wide choice among courses offered in fulfilling the minimum of 18 credits in English. They are urged, however, to report to the Director of Undergraduate Studies as early as possible for help in planning a program.
