Build communication skills and a broad world-view with the minor in English literature.
The minor in English literature can be an instrumental partner for many other undergraduate degrees across the university, whether in sciences or the humanities.
If you are a Faculty of Arts student, a minor requires 30 credits in the specialization, 18 of which must be at the upper level. You can add a minor through the Student Service Centre. Courses outside the Department of English Language and Literatures may not count towards the minor.
If you are a student in another faculty, e.g. Faculty of Science, and wish to pursue a minor in English, you must receive approval from your faculty’s advising team.
