The Department of English offers majors in English, creative writing, prelaw, and theology. If you are an Arts and Sciences student interested in becoming licensed to teach English at the secondary level (middle school or high school), please seek assistance at the department office, Ellis 360, to meet with English Department faculty members knowledgeable about English education. Together, you can plan how to complete the licensure requirements listed under Integrated Language Arts in the College of Education section of this catalog.
The Department also offers Arts and Sciences students who qualify the opportunity to take an intensive 60-hour, two-year major in tutorial form, alongside the Honors Tutorial College English students. Tutorial seminars start each September. Students must have a high degree of self-motivation and have excellent capacities for the study of English literature. If interested, apply to the departmental director of the Tutorial Program, through the department office.
