Student of any major can easily earn a minor in English. A minor in English diversifies your degree, and shows employers you are curious, creative, and insightful. Also, it’s fun to do. Students regularly report that their English courses are the most interesting and thought-provoking courses of their undergraduate studies.
How to Earn A Minor in English:
Speak to your PACT mentor to declare for the English minor
Complete any five English courses (15 total credits) level 195 or higher
Students can complete the five English courses as part of their General Education Electives, sometimes called Liberal Arts Electives, or as Open Electives. However many Open Elective credits you have to complete is however many credits less than 60 are required for your major field of study. So for example the Communication Disorders major requires 48 credits, so students of that major have 12 Open Elective credits to complete. The English major requires 36 credits, so English majors have 24 Open Elective credits to complete. English majors should consider putting this flexibility to work to earn a minor in another field, such as Media Studies, Communication, Music Tech, Business Administration, or anything else. Contact the English Program Director or your PACT advisor to learn more about minors.
