Minor in Literature
Scrutinize Literature and Develop Comprehensive Communication Skills
A minor in Literature from the College of Human Sciences and Humanities at University of Houston-Clear Lake lets students who love reading great literature and writing creatively indulge their passions even as they pursue degrees in other fields. The literature program offers a range of courses in which students intensively read, think, discuss and write about American, British, European, and World literature; the minor in literature allows students to maintain a primary focus in another field, but still take these literature classes in a structured manner that is formally recognized on their transcripts.
Preparations for Graduate Studies or Your Future Career
Throughout history, the study of great literature has been a source of intellectual
pleasure and also a way of training the mind to think and the hand to write critically
about the world. Although the technical complexity of modern society often leads students
to major in disciplines where they focus on acquiring particular professional skills,
minoring in literature allows you to deepen your abilities to read, think and write
perceptively and critically about a broad range of issues. It increases your value
by signaling to potential employers that you possess the adaptability, sensitivity,
and the reflective and creative capacities that are hallmarks of a broad, humanistic
approach to life and work.
