Minor in English

The English minor at Trevecca Nazarene University is a fifteen-hour course of study featuring a flexible roster of courses.  Students pursuing a minor in English learn to interact with literature from a Christian perspective and to recognize the roots of contemporary ideas in canonical texts.  Classes include C. S. Lewis and the Inklings; Christian Fiction; Life, Death, and Marriage in Eastern Literature; and a number of other options.  The English minor is an ideal companion to majors in history, psychology, dramatic arts, social justice, and other courses of study in the humanities and sciences.

We look forward to talking with you about English at Trevecca.  Please email questions and comments to Dr. Jooly Philip (jphilip@trevecca.edu).
