Degree Minor or Secondary Coursework Area
Students may choose to do a degree minor or a secondary area of concentration. A degree minor requires completion of 15 semester hours (5 courses) in another department or program. The particular courses are subject to the approval of both the Director of Graduate Studies in English and the Director of Graduate Studies in the minor department. The student is examined in the minor area on the Ph.D. qualifying examinations, and a professor from the minor department serves on the examination committee.
