Economics with English BSc

The English minor combines the broad historical coverage of traditional English degrees with distinctive features reflecting the College’s liberal arts tradition. It aims to prepare its students to read the texts which we call literature, and other uses of language, with greater acuity, penetration, and pleasure, for the rest of their lives.
