The major requires 30 credits of upper-division (300-400 level) English courses. Students should plan to take only two 200-level courses in order to graduate in a timely way.
English majors may pursue either the Bachelor of Arts or the Bachelor of Science. The BA requires two years of study in a foreign language. When possible, English majors should choose the BA.
NB: the 200-level literature courses are not sequential. One can take, e .g., ENG 241 American Literature II without having taken ENG 240 .
For information about applying to the teacher certification program, please visit the Department of Education and Human Development in 282 Brown. English majors who intend to teach grades 1-6 may choose either the Creative Writing concentration or the Literature concentration. Majors who intend to teach grades 5-12 must choose the Literature concentration.
