Minor in English

The Minor in English can be a very useful partner for many other undergraduate degrees across the university, whether in sciences or the humanities. Like the Majors Program, the Minor in English allows students to specialize in either Language or Literature.

For Faculty of Arts students, a minor requires a total of 30 credits in the specialization, 18 of which must be at the upper level. Students can add a minor through the Student Service Centre.

Students in other faculties, eg. Faculty of Science, who wish to pursue a Minor in English should have their program approved by Science Advising. This should be submitted at the beginning of Year 3.
