Explore Our Minors

UO English offers several distinctive minors that range from traditional studies in literature and rhetoric to more interdisciplinary studies that explore a wide range of texts, cultural materials, and new media.

Our minors are ideal for students who want to think creatively, hone their critical thinking, and become versatile writers. The skills gained in our programs provide vital preparation for business and professional careers, as well as for further academic work or artistic endeavors. The experience of our graduates has proven that studies in literature, rhetoric, and culture are an excellent background for law, medicine, teaching, management, publishing, advertising and advanced technology fields.
