Program description

Language and Linguistics

As a major, English offers a varied and soundly-based program that unifies the study of composition, language, and literature.

It prepares the student for a career in business, communications media, teaching, and for advanced study in graduate and professional schools. It is truly a versatile major.

Within the English major, students may concentrate their programs of study in literature, language and linguistics, or English education.

Our programs seek to develop skills applicable not only to all professional disciplines but also to significant tasks of life: the ability to read perceptively, write effectively, and think critically. The senior seminar, English 490: Seminar in Literature, offers an integrative experience in which students work not only toward the fullest development of their skills as readers, writers, and thinkers but also toward their development as professional scholars.

Students may prepare for a career in teaching English at the secondary level (junior high or high school) by completing an approved "Subject Matter Preparation Program." Completion of such a program is the first step in meeting the state requirements for a teaching credential. As the program requirements for the "Subject Matter Preparation Program" in English have changed recently, interested students should consult the departmentally designated advisor for current information.
