To be successful in fields from business and industry, government and education or engineering and science & technology, you must be able to communicate effectively. The English minor courses offered online through Penn State World Campus give you the opportunity to explore writing and literature in order to become a more practiced and eloquent communicator. You may select any combination of writing and/or literature courses that are relevant to your personal interests and professional goals.
The study of literature can provide insights into human behavior as well as useful perspectives on diverse cultural values. Writing requires logical thinking to formulate a point of view and to find the most precise and appealing way in which to present it.
