Minor in English

The minor in English offers students the opportunity to take a wide variety of English courses.

Program requirements and regulations

The minor in English consists of:

  • at least 24 ch in English completed with a grade of C or better
  • at least 12 ch of these from advanced-level (third- and fourth-year) courses

These courses must be approved by the director of majors, honours and minors and must form a "coherent set or sequence of courses" as called for by the general university regulations for the minor.

Students pursuing an English minor, especially those registered in the BEd program, are strongly advised to take ENGL 1000 (or equivalent) and ENGL 2901 and ENGL 2902 as a lower-level foundation.

Students should note that any courses compulsory for their programs may not be counted toward a minor.

Students transferring credits from another university should note that at least half of the credits counted towards a UNB minor in English must be from courses taken at the University of New Brunswick.
