Minor in English

Why consider an English minor? All college level degrees require advanced levels of literacy within their specific subject. But only one discipline, English, zeroes in on the skills of advanced literacy itself—the ability to read critically and write analytically. Because an English minor directly trains you in the skills of advanced reading and writing, it will necessarily enhance your success in literally any other college degree.
