The English major requires 45 credits in English and linguistics courses and is designed to give the student a broad overview of literature, writing, and the language.
Student Learning Outcomes
- Develop and enhance students’ abilities to communicate in written English while encouraging students to view themselves as engaged, creative and relevant producers of knowledge;
- Develop students’ literary background as one part of a humanities background which fosters intellectual skills, humanistic understanding, cross-cultural literacy, and aesthetic appreciation;
- Develop students’ ability to think analytically, speculatively, and imaginatively in ways that are applicable across the disciplines; and
- Enhance students’ ability to employ instructional technology in their writing, learning and research in innovative and creative ways.
To count toward the Major, courses must be passed with a minimum grade of “C.” Topics courses may only fulfill the specific requirements when approved by the department. All sections of English 210 count as a major elective.
