English majors take 18 hours of courses in lower-division major requirements of the general education curriculum. These courses are designed as an introduction to the field of English Studies.

At the 3000/4000 level, students choose one course from each of eight categories reflecting different areas within the discipline: Language, Writing, Genres, Cultural Studies, Theory, and three period requirements.

The English major culminates in the Senior Seminar, which is the major’s capstone course, and 9 hours of an applied/professional sequence. The applied/professional sequence consists of three additional upper-level English courses chosen to foster professional development in the subfield(s) of English Studies which the student aims to pursue upon graduation (e.g., creative writing, applied writing, advanced study of literature). The sequence may include ENGL 3398, Internship, or ENGL 3396, Cooperative Study.

All English majors must demonstrate competence in foreign languages up through the level of FL 2002.
