Minors in English
- The English Department offers five minors: Creative Writing, English Studies, Professional Writing, Technical Writing, and Humanities Analytics.
- Our department also offers two Interdepartmental Minors with Dietrich College: Film and Media Studies and Gender Studies.
These minors can complement any major offered at CMU and will teach you skills in research, analysis, and communication that will benefit you across all disciplines. Contact Laura Donaldson to arrange a meeting with an advisor if you are interested in pursuing a minor in the English Department.
Requirements for a Minor
Minors are available to all undergraduate students except English majors, who may not both major and minor in English. Minors require a minimum of six courses, including Interpretation and Argument or an equivalent course. Though courses offered by the department vary by semester, descriptions for current and recent courses are available online.
