Undergraduate Course Catalog

English

E. Riddle, Chairperson

The English Department offers directed majors and minors that allow students to develop advanced intellectual and professional skills in writing, in analytical thinking, and in creative expression. With courses in literature, linguistics, creative writing, rhetoric and writing, and English education, English studies offers diverse gateways into the study of language. American, British, and world literature courses enable students to read and interpret works of literature with a greater understanding of their cultural, aesthetic and philosophical contexts. Linguistics offers an understanding of how languages are structured and how languages are used in communicative and interactional contexts. Creative writing courses offer students the opportunity to sharpen their writing and creative thinking skills through the study of poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, and screenwriting. Rhetoric and writing courses help students grow as writers and understand how writing contributes to lifelong learning and professional success. English education courses prepare students for the challenges and rewards of teaching in elementary and secondary schools. 
    While each major has its own unique gateway class, all students take a common capstone course, ENG 444, Senior Seminar. The Department of English offers a bachelor of arts degree for all majors, except for the English/Language Arts teaching major, which may be awarded either as a bachelor of arts or a bachelor of science. We also offer minors in creative writing, linguistics, literature, and professional writing and emerging media, and a license in English as a Second Language for teachers.
    For graduation with the English/Language Arts teaching major, the minimum grade-point average for all courses in the major is 2.5. The lowest acceptable grade in a course for credit toward any major or minor in English is C.
    For information about the related minors in African-American studies, European studiesNative American studies, and women’s and gender studies, see Interdepartmental Programs.
