The Critical Theory minor is open to all undergraduates, in any major. A minor in Critical Theory will provide you with the skills and ability to question the world in which you live.
Requirements (6 courses):
- 1 required course: Comp Lit 207/PHIL 220: Introduction to Critical Theory
- 5 interdisciplinary 300-level courses approved by the program, including at least 1 course in each of three generally defined fields:
- literary theory
- political theory
*Students may petition to the Director of Undergraduate Studies to count courses not listed or to substitute 1 200-level course for a 300-level course.
Critical Theory in the Global South Focus: Students may also opt to obtain an interdisciplinary thematic focus on this field (CTGS) if 3 of the 5 300-level courses they take for the minor are also approved under this rubric.
