English Minor (Manchester)


With a minor in English, you can complement your major with five classes from our areas of study. We think you'll find that even subjects that seem far apart have an uncanny way of intersecting.

In our literature courses, you might read and research a novel about bioengineering, even as our writing classes give you an opportunity to study the many genres of creative and occupational writing. English study expands your portfolio of transferable skills while keeping your imaginative faculties in high gear.

Employers from across the professional spectrum are looking for employees with skill sets that include those of an English minor—for instance, the ability to think critically, parse challenging texts, and express new ideas persuasively and creatively. You'll be amazed at what an English minor can do for you both personally and professionally.

For more information, contact Susanne Paterson, Associate Professor, Program Coordinator, and minor supervisor.
