Students majoring in English enter a course of study leading to either a Bachelor of Arts or a Bachelor of Science degree. The Bachelor of Arts requires the study of a non-English modern or classical language through the intermediate (204) level. The English program offers majors and minors with emphases in Literature, Creative Writing, Professional Writing and Rhetoric, and English Teaching. In cooperation with the Romain College of Business, the English program also offers a Minor in Entrepreneurship for English Majors. A student who is not an English major or minor may earn a writing concentration certificate by completing 15 hours of advanced writing courses.
All English majors pursuing either the Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science must complete 42 credit hours with a minimum 2.0 GPA.
