A minor in folklore teaches you to read literature with a broad perspective on its significance in language, dance, history, and fine arts. From legends to oral history, proverbs to jokes, fairy tales and tall tales to customs, folklore provides a broad spectrum of social expression.

Due to its wide variety of applications, the folklore minor pairs well with any major.

If you want to turn this interdisciplinary studies minor into a major, consider Truman’s interdisciplinary studies major.
