Liberal Studies Program Requirements 

Major Requirements


Language Requirement - 6 hours          

MFL 231, 232 or 240 Credits: (6)

The major requires 34 hours as follows:

(1 hour) Gateway Course


(3 hour) Capstone Course


(6 Hours) Guided English Electives


6 hours selected from 300-400 level ENGL courses.   A total of 120 hours is required to graduate with a BA, including a minor, second major, or other approved program (at least 38 hours). Professional Writing Students are encouraged to take ENGL classes as their general electives to meet the 120 hour requirement. BA English (Literature, Professional Writing, English Studies, Pedagogy, or Motion Picture Studies) students who elect to enroll in the Professional Writing, Film Studies, Literature, or Creative Writing minor may not use an ENGL course for both the major and the minor; double counting of a course between majors and this minor is not allowed. All BSEd Secondary Education - English majors must also enroll in the BA English degree program. Any BA English concentration may be selected (i.e. Literature, Professional Writing, Motion Picture Studies, or English Studies Pedagogy) but the English Studies Pedagogy (ESP) concentration allows completion of both degrees within 120 hours. BSEd Secondary Education - English students who enroll in the BA English - ESP concentration satisfy the BA language requirements with the language requirement of the BSEd Secondary Education - English (six hours in any foreign language or languages). Selection of any other BA English concentration requires completion of the prescribed BA foreign language requirement ( 6 hours MFL 231,232 or 240) and may require coursework beyond the 120 hours in order to complete the requirements of both programs.
