English Minor

The English minor is designed to offer students an opportunity to explore literature written in English (including translations from other languages).  Students may complement literature courses with creative writing and/or English language courses.

Required Course

One of the  critical content courses: LIT 200/Introduction to Poetry OR LIT 201/Approaches to Literature OR LIT 202/Cultures and Canons.  Contact the Associate Chair for assistance registering for one of these courses.

4 Options in English

Choose four 200-level and above courses from the literature (LIT), language/linguistics (LNG) and creative writing (CWR) courses offered by the department. By TCNJ policy, two of these courses must be in 300-level or above.

For more information, please contact the Associate Chair.

Only one course unit, either required or elective, may be used to satisfy requirements for both a major field and a minor field.
