English minors may choose from any LIT, CRWR, or LING courses to count

toward their elective category (note that there may be prerequisites for some

courses), including courses that count toward general education requirements

(e.g., LIT 110, LIT 230, or CRWR 240). All WRIT courses at the 200-level or

above also count toward the English minor. In addition, certain courses in

other departments (e.g., ENST 335, NASX 340, PHL 494, and FILM 324) may

count with the approval of the chair. Certain courses (e.g., CRWR 410 or

LIT 437) may be repeated for credit and counted toward the minor

requirements with approval of the chair.
