You must take one of two required courses:
Option 1: English 318, 3 credits
Offered in fall only.
Option 2: Curriculum & Instruction 673, 3 credits (please do not take the 2-credit version)
Depending on which option you choose above, 6 credits of electives. Be sure to get electives approved in advance by the SLA minor advisor. Check the SLA website for upcoming courses.
To finish the SLA minor, you will need to fill in the SLA Minor Progress form and have your prelim warrant signed by the SLA Program.
- SLA Minor Progress Form: Fill in this form and submit for approval before you take your preliminary exams in your major. To obtain a link to this form, please contact Professor Naomi Geyer and Dr. Jana Martin. This form must be approved before the SLA Program can sign your prelim warrant.
- Take your preliminary exams in your major.
- Work with the Graduate Program Coordinator in your home department to submit the prelim warrant to the SLA Program for a signature.
- When you graduate, let the SLA minor advisor and SLA program coordinator know so you are removed from the SLA minor list and placed on the SLA alumni list.
