Curriculum Guides
BA English
BA English with Teaching Certification 7-12

Professors encourage English majors and minors to attend plays, readings, and conferences; to publish both scholarly and creative writing; and to participate in university publications such as The Muse, the Schreiner University Yearbook, and The Mountaineer. Because English majors and minors should understand both cultural and historical contexts of language and literature, they should enroll in both HIST 1350 and HIST 1351.

The major in English consists of ENGL 2340 and 2341 plus 27 advanced English hours, excluding ENGL 3303, 3306 and 3307 but including ENGL 3308, 3320, 3321, 3322, 3330, 3331, 4332, 4351 and either ENGL 4330, 4340, 4363, 4365, 4371 or 4399.

Students majoring in English may choose 26 semester hours of electives. Students seeking teacher certification in English should consult the Teacher Education section of this catalog for specific course selection. Placement in English courses is based on English placement assessment.
