English Minor

The most commonly spoken language in the world, English is the language of media, the internet, business, science, computers, diplomacy, tourism and more. Command over the English language does more than give you culture and style – it opens up a world of possibilities for your future.

Why Choose an English Minor at Salisbury University?

Salisbury University’s English program cultivates visionary thinkers with a wide range of courses – from analyzing Medieval literature to the strategies of digital media.

Many students ask, is an English minor good? As a Salisbury student, the experience you get will take you farther than you can imagine. You could take part in the following opportunities:

Our department may be housed in a small city, but our outreach is truly international: Our graduates have taught English abroad in Asia, Europe, the Middle East and South America. We are also home to one of most distinguished academic journals worldwide, Literature/Film Quarterly.

For a more in-depth study, SU also offers an English major, which has seven tracks, including creative writing, film and literature.

Beyond the professional use, I think that an English major, in almost every field we teach within our department, helps you understand the reality of other people’s lives.
