Literature Minor

This minor provides an introduction to broad, culturally inclusive, and interdisciplinary understanding of literature and what it means to write and communicate in a global community. Students have the opportunity to choose from a wide selection of literature courses that cover a broad range of aesthetic styles, formal genres, and political and historical contexts as they explore one of our more complex and important art forms.

At least 16 credits in Literature courses. No more than one course (4 credits) may be at the 200 level. The remaining 12 credits must be in courses numbered 300 or above. These courses should have a planned coherence; they may focus, for example, on a genre, tradition, area, or period.
