Bachelor of Arts in English

Bachelor of Arts in English

 



The Division of English and Applied Linguistics offers two majors: an English Major and an English and ESL Major.

The English Major is comprised of three emphases, each sharing courses with  the others while focusing on a particular field of study: 1) the Literature Emphasis; 2) the Linguistics/ESL Emphasis; and 3) the English for Education Emphasis. The Literature Emphasis requires 42 credit hours beyond EN110, EN111, and either EN210 or EN213.

The Division also offers two minors. Both the English Minor and the Writing Minor require 18 credit hours beyond EN110 and EN111. 

Students planning careers as teachers of English, language arts, or ESL (English as a Second Language) can declare a double major combining an English major with a major in Secondary Education from the School of Education (SOE), which would satisfy certification requirements. Or they can declare an English Major only and then upon graduation pursue a certification program with SOE. Students should seek advisement from both English and SOE.

The English major provides students with a solid foundation in the humanities, expertise in written and oral communication, and sustained training in analytical and critical thinking. It forms intellectual basis for graduate study in English and other areas of scholarship. In addition, the English major provides excellent preparation for professional careers in a wide variety of fields which drives on the advantages of a liberal arts education.

Upon successful completion of any of the English Major’s emphasis, the student will demonstrate the ability to:

  1. Understand the concepts, structures, and functions of human languages;
  2. Describe the aesthetic, rhetorical, structural, and multicultural qualities texts, as well as critical and historical approaches to those texts;
  3. Prepare, organize, and deliver effective oral presentations for a variety of purposes and audiences;
  4. Conduct substantive research using discipline- appropriate techniques, methodologies, and environments (digital or non-digital), producing or locating valid data and source materials;
  5. Write coherent, discipline-appropriate essays and research papers, documenting properly to avoid plagiarism.
