The English Minor provides a foundation for the study of literature written in English and offers practice in writing. Compatible with both liberal arts and pre-professional majors, the Minor allows students to examine culture and human experience from a perspective other than that of their major field. Prospective employers, who often look closely at job candidates' writing and communicating skills, often find the English Minor an attractive applicant.
At Oneonta, the Minor in English consists of 18 semester hours of courses offered by the English Department or accepted by the English Department as substitutions.
