Literature, Minor

The Literature minor emphasizes reading and writing in multiple genres across diverse cultural, historical, and national traditions. Courses address a wide range of periods, authors, genres, and themes. Students develop both an expansive ethical imagination and broadly applicable and transferable skills in writing, textual analysis, and creative thinking that can provide the foundation for a wide range of personal and professional goals. Students may also take one class in creative writing, professional writing, or rhetoric and composition.
