English majors pursue a course of study through one of three different tracks: the language, literature and culture track; the writing and rhetorics track; or the teaching certification in secondary English education track.
In addition to meeting the liberal arts core requirements of the University, students must complete a minimum of 36 semester hours of English courses and two semesters of one foreign language for the writing and rhetorics track. For the language, literature and culture track, a minimum of 32 semester hours of English courses and 12 language elective semester hours is required.

English Secondary Education Certification
English Education combines both the English major and Education major. For this major, you must complete a minimum of 31 semester hours of English courses, 6 semester hours of a foreign language, 6 semester hours of oral communication and the courses required for secondary education certification.
If you are pursuing another degree and are interested in achieving reading and writing skills beyond the core liberal arts requirements, the English minor is a wise option. The minor includes 15 semester hours of English courses consisting of electives and a composition class.
