Minors allow students to focus on an area that complements their major, enhance their knowledge and skills, or pursue a particular interest. The Department of English offers three minors: English, Creative Writing, and an Interdisciplinary Minor in Linguistics and Culture. When visiting the department's office to officially declare an English or English-related minor, students will be provided with a course guide for that minor. To speak with an advisor regarding a minor, contact Professor Dan Beachy-Quick by email at dan.beachy-quick@colostate.edu, in-person during office hours, or by appointment in Eddy Hall, Room 343.

For information about English and Composition course offerings and registration procedures for the upcoming semester or summer session, please contact Sheila Dargon at Sheila.Dargon@colostate.edu.

Minor in English

The English minor is designed for students with interests in English studies who do not want to complete an English major. With very few exceptions, the minor allows students to choose any English or Composition courses to create a program of study specific to their needs and interests. A minimum of 21 credits in courses with the E subject code must be completed. At least 12 of those credits must be upper-division.

The English department also offers the Linguistics and Culture Interdisciplinary Minor and the Creative Writing Minor.

Effective Spring 1996 

Students must satisfactorily complete the total credits required for the minor. Minors and interdisciplinary minors require 12 or more upper-division (300- to 400-level) credits.

Additional coursework may be required due to prerequisites.
