The department offers a wide range of possibilities for noncontiguous minors. The options include courses in a single regional or national literature, courses in more than one literature, and a combination of language and literature courses. The minors require seven courses. All courses taken to complete a literature minor must be taken for a letter grade. No grade below C- is acceptable. Advanced Placement (AP) credit will not satisfy minor requirements.
A minor in literature will consist of seven courses as described below.
French, German, Greek, Italian, Latin, Russian, or Spanish literature: seven courses, at least four of which must be upper-division in the same literature.
Literatures in English, Literatures of the World, and Literature/Writing: seven courses, at least five of which must be upper-division.
Lower-division courses applicable toward minors:
Literatures of the World: seven literature courses, at least five of which must be upper-division--usually 1) a two- or three-course lower-division sequence and 2) five upper-division courses with a single unifying theme. Students may use either the Revelle College Humanities sequence (HUM 1-5) or Eleanor Roosevelt College's Making of the Modern World (MMW 1-6) to satisfy the lower-division sequence for the LTWL minor.
