English Minor

Also available at OSU-Cascades

The minor in English allows students to concentrate in the area of the liberal arts and develop the reading and writing skills often demanded by employers.

There are three options for completing the English minor: General English, the English Literature, and the American Literature.

Students must receive a grade of C– or better in any course applied toward the minor. Such courses cannot be taken with S/U grading.
