Prepare yourself for long-term success by developing the critical thinking, analysis, and written and oral communication skills employers desire. Expand your horizons through extensive reading and engagement in the historical and cultural contexts of written texts. Explore the traditions and issues of different cultures, learn how to consider multiple perspectives, and uncover the narrative/storytelling conventions used not just in literature, but in marketing, filmmaking, gaming, and many other industries.
The 15-credit Minor in Literature and Culture is open to students in all majors. In addition to the 3-credit ICLT course required as part of the Core Curriculum, you’ll need to take four more 300-level courses from among the Literature Core (with an option of a creative writing course) with topics that range from science fiction to global cultures, human rights, and bioethics; from the plays of Shakespeare to contemporary novels and digital media.
Whether you’re working on a poem, a research paper, or an opinion piece, professors of English are available to help you brainstorm, review a draft, develop your ideas, or just double-check your grammar.
