Major Field of Concentration


Upper Division Requirements:


The major concentration in English consists of a minimum of 22 semester hours of upper-division work. Required courses are:

Three additional upper-division courses:


Selected in consultation with the major advisor in accord with one of the three tracks offered by the department (described below). Students pursuing any track within the English major must also complete EN 4930  for 1-3 credit hours.

Strongly recommended:


It is also strongly recommended that majors take an introductory literature course:

Additional Information:


For the remainder of a student’s program, including 12 required semester hours of upper-division courses in related subjects, selection is based upon the student’s objectives and in consultation with the major advisor. A grade of C or better is required in each upper-division course of the major. (A grade of C- will not satisfy the requirement.)

Literature Track:


Within the literature track of the English major, the student must complete at least three upper-division literature electives, such as period, genre, figure, theory, or interpretation courses. Because an important purpose of the electives is to broaden the student’s experience of literature, additional courses in Shakespeare will not count toward the three electives of the literature track. Students may, of course, take additional courses beyond their major requirements.

Additional Information:


Also required are two semesters of college-level study of one language other than English. This requirement may be fulfilled by completing two semesters of college-level literature in one language other than English. In either case, the language courses must be taken for college-level credit. [Neither College Level Examination Program (CLEP) nor Advanced Placement (AP) exams fulfills this requirement.]
