The English Minor

Director of Undergraduate Studies, Professor Brad Pasanek, bmp7e@virginia.edu

Students wishing to minor in English must complete 18 credit hours of English courses.  With the exception of a single ENLT (or ENGL) 2000-level course, all courses must be upper-division (numbered 3000 and above).  These must include:

1.  Any two semesters of the survey sequence ENGL 3810, 3820 and 3830.

2.  No more than six credits in any one of the following distribution categories: ENMD, ENRN, ENEC, ENNC, ENMC, ENAM, and ENCW/ENWR. However, students may take all three parts of the core survey (ENGL 3810, 3820, 3830) and apply them to the minor.

Only courses taken in the English Department at the University of Virginia can count toward the English minor.  Within the College of Arts and Sciences, the same course may not be applied to a major and a minor.
