Additional Requirements

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). BA English/Motion Picture Studies students may not declare a Film Studies minor.

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 course between those majors and this minor is not allowed. If courses taken in the major are also used to complete the Liberal Studies requirements, more hours need to be completed to reach the 120 hours required for degree.

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/English students who enroll in the BA English-ESP concentration satisfy the BA language requirement 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 (six hours MFL 231/232 or 240) and may require students to take coursework beyond the 120 hours to complete the requirements of both programs.
