English, Minor

The English minor at Saint Louis University is student-centered, with small, writing-intensive courses that emphasize discussion, close reading and critical thinking.

SLU's English minors take courses in traditional literary fields (including American, British and world literatures), as well as innovative and emergent areas of English studies (such as new media, rhetoric and creative writing). Throughout their coursework, English minors develop imaginative engagements with different time periods and cultures and effective analytical thinking and writing skills.
