About

The Department of English offers major programs leading to a Bachelor of Arts degree. Each of these programs develops communication and critical thinking skills, which are highly valued in graduate schools, professional programs, and businesses in a variety of settings. Students choosing the B.A. in English may opt for a concentration in either literature or writing. The literature option provides students with the broadest possible perspective of diverse literary traditions. The writing concentration balances literary study with the theory and practice of writing. When combined with a sequence of courses in Teacher Education, the degree in English leads to the Bachelor of Arts Degree and teacher certification at the secondary level (grades seven through twelve). English majors with a concentration in either Literature or Writing and Publication MUST have a minor. This minor may be any area other than English; choices open for the minor include Gender Studies and Journalism, as well as many other fields. 

The mission of the department is enhanced by the Writing Program, which includes both first-year composition and the writing concentration and supports the University's Writing Across the Curriculum Program. The faculty of the Department of English assist students in planning their academic program of study and in choosing courses which comply with degree requirements for the selected major.
