English majors may pursue a B.A. or B.S. Ed. degree.

Required 100-level and 200-level major courses must be completed by the end of the sophomore year. Liberal arts majors must complete ENGL 110, 220, 233, 231 or 235, 237 and 311 with a minimum ENGL GPA of 2.00. Secondary education majors must complete ENGL 110, 220, 233, 231, 235, 237, 311 and 321, with a minimum ENGL GPA of 2.00. These courses must be completed before English majors may enroll in 400-level courses, unless the department chairperson sanctions concurrent enrollment in lower and upper division courses.

A total of 42-45 credit hours in English (which may include ENGL 110) is required for graduation. If English composition competency is satisfied by examination without credit, one additional English elective is required.

The department participates in the prelaw advisory committee, School of Humanities and Social Sciences. English majors planning careers in law should contact the departmentís prelaw adviser.

In planning a course of study, English majors must consult with their departmental academic advisers on a regular basis, because major revisions in programs of study offered in whole or in part by the English department may occur to modify or expand existing requirements.
