Minors are a combination of courses designed to provide a cohesive introduction to an area of study beyond the student's major. The English Department offers four minors: English Studies, English Education, Writing, and Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL).
English faculty and English courses are also included in a variety of University-wide minors.
The minor in English is a good choice if you want a minor with a variety of English courses.
The minor in English Education is an option for students in other Secondary Education programs who wish to be endorsed in the Language Arts. By completing the minor, you will be certified to teach Language Arts in addition to your major area.
The minor in TESOL is most often taken by students who are seeking an endorsement in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) in order to diversify their teaching or professional credentials.
The minor in Writing is taken by students in a variety of majors. Students in the minor can specialize in Creative Writing, Technical Writing, or Rhetoric and Composition.
Students selecting a University-wide, interdisciplinary minor can take advantage of the many exciting resources of ISU's large scholarly community
