Literature Minor


Designed for students who wish to study British, American, and other Anglophone literature and culture. Study great literature to cultivate your critical imagination, your cultural knowledge, and your own writing. Encounter a rich variety of voices across history and discover your own creative voice in this enduring conversation. Courses address a wide range of periods, authors, genres, and themes. In addition to courses focusing on literature and culture, students may take one class in creative writing, professional writing, or rhetoric and composition.
