English: Working with their minor advisor, students plan an individualized course of study tailored to their personal and professional plans. The English minor requires students to take six ENGL courses (a maximum of two ENGL 200-level courses and four ENGL 300- or ENGL 400-level courses). 

Environmental Humanities: The interdisciplinary Environmental Humanities minor gives students the chance to think more rigorously and imaginatively about environmental issues.

Jewish Studies: Jewish Studies, an intellectually compelling, interdisciplinary minor, offers students an opportunity to take a broad range of courses in Jewish culture. 

Journalism: The Journalism minor teaches students how to report effectively, hone writing skills, and learn to adapt to various media genres. Specialized classes include medical, environmental, political, and critical writing.

Material Culture Studies: Through the minor in Material Culture Studies, students examine the material world we have made and seek to understand people's cultural beliefs, values, ideas, and assumptions as expressed in objects, things, and places. 

Writing: The Writing minor helps students develop the ability to read and write effectively, to analyze, to see through deceptive rhetoric, to interpret documents, and to create by focusing on critical literacy in a range of creative and professional modes.
