English Minor

The English Minor provides a foundation for the study of literature written in English and offers practice in writing. Compatible with both liberal arts and pre-professional majors, the Minor allows students to examine culture and human experience from a perspective other than that of their major field. Prospective employers, who often look closely at job candidates’ writing and communicating skills, often find the English Minor an attractive applicant. For more information please contact the English Department, 322 Netzer, (607) 436-3446.
