English Minor

If you love to read and analyze literature, but don’t have time for a full major in English, BSU’s English minor is for you.

You can pair the minor with any major offered at Bemidji State. You will take survey courses that study literature over a period of time, such as “American Literature.” You will also take literature courses that provide in-depth study of a particular topic, such as “Shakespeare and His Age” or “The American Short Story.”

Taking a minor is an excellent way to enhance your studies. It provides a concentration of courses that can complement your major or give you knowledge and expertise in a second field for which you have a passion. A minor in English shows potential graduate schools and employers that you have critical thinking skills.
