The minor in literature allows the student to acquaint themselves with a range of writers, genres, and cultures. Beyond personal enrichment, the minor demonstrates a student’s breadth of education and their ability to engage with complex texts and ideas. As such, it is potentially valuable to students in numerous majors, whether in another aspect of the humanities or a science. For pre-professional majors, a minor in literature may help demonstrate to prospective employers a broad intellect that speaks to a student’s adaptability, as well as a capacity to engage wit diverse cultures and fields of study.
