English Minor

Students in many vocational fields often realize that special skill in writing may be of great use in their future work -- and such skill can best be obtained through an English minor. The English Minor requires 20 units above ENGL 5B or 10, at least 12 of which must be upper division, and 4 of these units must be from 189 or 193T/194T. ENGL 160W does not apply to the English Minor. Courses taken as CR/NC may not apply to the minor with the exception of 4 units total of 175T and 186.
