Being an English minor at Southern is all about discovering your voice in the global, professional, and academic community of readers and writers, in a shorter, more concentrated course of study suitable for coupling with other majors or minors. English studies provide a pathway to careers in teaching, law, publishing, professional writing, management, advertising, web design, and many other fields. Employers have increasingly cited a strong background in literature, writing, and the humanities as a valued commodity in the professions. An English minor fosters strong writing, reading, and communication skills, as well as a deep awareness of the varieties of human motives, social interactions, and cultures.
The Literature minor offers students the opportunity to supplement courses in literary analysis and multicultural literature with further choices in a broad range of literary studies courses in English- language and world literatures.
