English Minor

Students in the BA program, who are registered in a Major program, may complete at the same time a Minor program in most Arts and Science subjects. A minor in English demonstrates advanced writing, reading, and critical thinking skills, and is a valuable credential for students in all TRU majors.

To complete a Minor a student must include in the 120 credits required for the degree at least 30 credits and no more than 42 credits in a single subject or field of specialization other than that of the Major. At least eighteen of these credits must be in courses numbered 300 or above.
