STEM in Literature and Culture (SLC)

The minor in STEM in Literature and Culture uses the medium of literature to take on social issues and ethical dilemmas specifically related to fields in science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and medicine. Students consider the philosophical and emotional challenges and opportunities that define what it means to be “human,” analyze complex life questions, think imaginatively, and express their insights through writing and public speaking.

STEM majors benefit from this minor by gaining understanding of the particular methods of English studies (literature, rhetoric, performance) that enhance their scientific, medical, engineering, and mathematical knowledge, both substantively and expressively.
