Students choosing this minor are encouraged to take PHIL 110 – Introduction to Philosophy or PHIL 220 – Ethics (each of which satisfies the Humanities and Fine Arts component of the General Education curriculum) before enrolling for other courses.

  • Spanish

    A minor in Spanish requires completion of 12 hours of Spanish courses numbered 300 or above.

  • Writing

    The Department of English and Foreign Languages offers a minor in Writing as a means to develop written communication skills that will be essential for success in any career path, within a coherent liberal-arts framework that reflects the mission of the College of Arts and Sciences. Students choosing this minor will select from a diverse roster of courses emphasizing both the practice of writing and the theories behind it. The culminating experience of the minor will be an individualized guided practicum that involves the creation of a portfolio that includes work of publishable quality. Either as an integrated part of the traditional English major or as a supplement to another major, the minor in Writing provides marketable skills that are also at the core of a liberal arts education.
