Requirements for the English Minor
The English minor consists of five units:
- ENG 120 or WRIT 120 [WRIT 120 replaces ENG 120/WRIT 105] or ENG 121
- at least one unit on literature written before 1900
- at least one 300-level unit, excluding ENG 350
- at least four units, including the 300-level course, taken in the department
One course taught within language and literature departments and related interdepartmental programs at Wellesley and other approved schools may be offered for minor credit; these may include literature courses taught in translation or language courses at the third-year level or higher. A maximum of two creative writing units may be included. A course on Shakespeare can count toward the minor, but it does not fulfill the pre-1900 requirement.
