The English minor involves courses in English, literature, linguistics, and literary theory to provide a breadth of knowledge for students interested in the English language.
The Northwestern English Department prepared me incredibly well for graduate school. I’m familiar with nearly every author and title on the syllabus in each class….Thanks to the projects and discussions in the thought-provoking courses I took, I now feel comfortable analyzing texts, writing papers, and presenting my ideas at the graduate level.
What will I learn?
You will learn to analyze, think critically, and develop effective written and verbal communication skills.
