English Undergraduate Programs

 

The Department of English Language and Literature offers two basic programs: liberal arts and teaching. Within each of these broad programs there are still additional choices, including the World Literature, Creative Writing, or an emphasis on secondary or elementary English education. Each program requires between 39 and 42 hours for a major and 24 to 27 hours for a minor, depending on the choice and emphasis.

Students who elect to major or minor in English should declare this intention before the end of their sophomore year. Junior transfer students should declare during their first semester on campus. The department assigns advisors to aid students in their major/minor program planning and to authorize programs for graduation and teacher preparation.
