A minor in English has value to anyone seeking a deeper awareness of the interplay of thought, emotion, cultural attitudes, and artistic expression. Moreover, students who want to enhance their job opportunities or opportunities for advancement in any field, should consider an English minor, which will help them develop skills that employers seek: sophisticated thinking, writing and speaking abilities. The English minor lays a foundation in reading, writing, and thinking that gives students a basis for active engagement in their communities and brings them personal satisfaction and pleasure. The English minor can also be used, in conjunction with secondary teaching certification in another area, to meet state teaching endorsement requirements for English.
