Minors allow students to focus on an area that complements their major, enhances their knowledge and skills, or allows them to 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 minor in English offers opportunities for students to create a unique path through English and Composition classes. Requirements are open: 21 credits total of E and/or upper-division CO courses, 12 credits of which must be at the 300-level or higher. This freedom allows students to pursue what they love most in language, literature, composition, and writing. Students will gain a set of skills, critical and creative both, that will complement both their major and future career. 

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.
