What You'll Study

The Minor in British and American Literature invites students to explore the wonders of two extraordinary literary traditions.

This minor offers courses that allow you to choose from a wide range of focuses that may take you as far back in time as texts from the medieval world or bring you as far forward as works written only recently. Coursework begins with historical surveys of texts, then is followed by an in-depth look into American and British literature. Students complete the minor with an extended research project in which they pursue in detail a subject that has captured their imaginations.
