Choosing a Minor in English

All English Department minors are open to students enrolled in any undergraduate college at the University. The minor requires 18-24 credits, six of which must be at the 300 level or above. Students who chose to do a minor in English or Theatre Arts should consult with an English Department adviser. The Department offers the following minors

General English Minor and Writing Minor
  • Students have two options for a minor in English. The General English minor offers the flexibility for students to choose coursework that reflects their interests in literature or writing.
  • The department’s Writing Minor offers students an opportunity to focus on journalism, creative and/or professional writing.

Please see the UMass Lowell online undergraduate catalog for requirements for both the General English and Writing Minors.
