The Department of English also offers a minor in Environmental Writing that requires the successful completion of 28 semester credit hours.
ENGL 209 - Literature About the Environment
ENGL 210 - Writing Nonfiction
ENGL 205 - Writing Fiction
ENGL 206 - Writing Poetry
Any One of the Following Courses:
ENGL 401 - Advanced Poetry Writing Workshop
ENGL 403 - Advanced Nonfiction Writing Workshop
Two Corequisite Courses:
Students minoring in Environmental Writing must also take at least two courses outside the English department that deepen their understanding of the natural environment or of environmental issues. These courses can be among those courses taken for a student's graduation major or for another minor (that is, they can be "double counted"). One course must come from the Environmental Science department, and we strongly recommend ENVSC 110 Introduction to Environmental Science. Other courses to choose from include the following:
Biology – any course
ECON 231 - Environmental Economics and Policy
Environmental Science – any course
Geology – any course
Other courses with appropriate environmental focus may be used as corequisites, subject to the approval of the Chair of the English Department, in consultation with members of the other relevant department and the Environmental Writing Coordinator.
