English Minor

Students wishing to declare a minor in English should consult with the chair for specific program planning. The minor includes six courses in one of two areas of concentration:

Literature: Six courses, including EN 110 , one course from “Forms of Language and Literature,” one course from “Language and Literature in Context,” and three courses from “Advanced Courses in Language and Literature.”

Creative Writing: Six courses, including:

  • two courses from the Forms of Language and Literature category;
  •  , EN 281 , EN 282  or  ;
  • one additional course (which could be EN 110 , a 200- or 300-level literature course, or another 200-level workshop);
  • and two 300-level creative writing workshops, open with regard to genre.


Students wishing to complete a minor in English should file a Declaration of Minor with the Registrar before the last semester of the senior year at Skidmore and maintain at least a 2.0 grade average in their concentration for the minor.

Note: 200-level courses in English are open to first-year students unless prerequisites or restrictions are stated in the description.
