The English Department offers three majors - one in literature, one in writing arts, and a pre-professional program in language arts. Both the literature major and the writing arts major provide a broad acquaintance with important literature of the past and present and offer a wide selection of writing courses.
Students wishing to become middle or high school English teachers can enroll in the language arts program or, if qualified, the combined Bachelor of Arts/Master of Science for Teachers program (0221), which is jointly administered by the English Department and the Teacher Education Unit. For more information, see the Combined Programs section of this catalog.
The English department sponsors a student-run literary magazine and an international literary magazine. Internships in various settings are available. The department offers prizes for outstanding essays, poetry, and fiction and awards four scholarships annually to deserving majors. Further, an advanced honors program is available for students in all programs.
