Minor Requirements

Transcript-Recognized Minors

The transcript-recognized undergraduate academic minor must be completed in conjunction with an undergraduate degree at the University of Texas at Austin.  The requirements listed below are for students following the 2016-2018 and later Undergraduate Catalogs.  Minor requirements for students following earlier catalogs are not transcript-recognized and will vary according to a student’s degree plan.


Fifteen semester hours in English, including at least nine hours of upper-division coursework and nine hours in residence. A grade of C- or higher is required in each course counted toward fulfillment of the minor.

The English minor is open to all UT-Austin students upon request.  To add the English minor, go here. Questions about the minor should be directed to the English Advising Office.
