Undergraduates interested in English

Students can major in one of four areas of specialization leading to the bachelor's degree in English:

  • Literature
  • Writing
  • Language and Linguistics
  • English for Secondary Teaching

We offer six areas of minor specialization for students majoring in other fields:

  • Literature
  • Writing
  • Language and Linguistics
  • Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL)

If you're ready to declare English as your major or minor, or just have more questions, make an appointment to talk with one of the English Department's academic advisors.
