Bachelor of Arts 

Major Requirements

A minimum of 30 hours (10 semester courses) is required for graduation in the English concentration. English 175, Introduction to Literature, is required of all majors. After completing that course, students complete a program of four courses in literature before 1800, four in literature after 1800, and one additional course. The purpose of this historical distribution is to ensure that majors acquire a reasonable knowledge of literary history and tradition. Please note that the following sequence provides a suggested course of study, rather than a mandatory order for completing major courses. Students are encouraged to work closely with their departmental advisors as they choose their courses each semester.
