This program is designed for students who are interested in the study of English literature but who have elected to major in another area. The recommended series of courses allows students to become acquainted with some of the methods of literary study and with a number of the most important literary works.

The literature minor allows students to complement their area of major study with systematic experience in literature.

These degree requirements are subject to periodic revision by the academic department, and the College reserves the right to make exceptions and substitutions as judged necessary in individual cases. Therefore, the College strongly urges students to consult regularly with their major advisor and CLAS advisor to confirm the best plans of study before finalizing them.
