The minor gives students a greater breadth of English studies knowledge, specifically in composition and rhetoric, grammar, literary criticism, the development of modern English, and the teaching of reading. Combined with the Middle Level Education major program requirements, this minor provides coursework to prepare students to potentially add-on the Secondary English certification.
