English Degree

Bachelor of Arts (B.A.)

The English Bachelor of Arts degree prepares students for opportunities in multiple professions including journalism, linguistics, technical writing, library science, business, and education. The degree also serves as preparation for graduate studies in English or law.

Working with an academic adviser in the English bachelor’s degree, students choose elective courses that tailor their educational and vocational goals to their program. Students may choose a concentration in one of several areas, as well as earn a semester of course work in study-abroad programs that apply to the English major.

English Major (B.A.) Courses

Program Requirements


Christian Studies Core


I. Christian Studies - 24 Credits


General Education Core


II. General Education - 40 Credits


Major Core


III. English Major - 54 Credits


IV. Electives - 8 Credits*


  • Electives 3 Credits
  • 300-400 Electives 5 Credits

At least 30% of this degree, or a minimum of 38 credits, must be at the upper (300-400) level. If you choose to take lower-level Christian Studies core classes (CHM 201 or CHM 210), then you must take enough upper-level general electives to meet this requirement.

* Some courses from the Christian Studies Core and Major Core can be used to fulfill requirements in the General Education Core. By doing that the number of electives needed would increase so that the minimum of 125 credits is reached.

Total - 125 Credits


1 Select humanities electives from COM, ENG, ESL, FAR, HIS, HUM, LAN, MUS, PHI, or PRC.

2 Select social science electives from ANT, CSJ, ECO, ESL, GEO, HIS, POL, PSY, or SOC.

3 Fine arts courses include music, art, drama, and dance. COM 328  also qualifies as a fine arts elective. (Only three credits of music organizations and/or lessons can be counted toward humanities/fine arts requirements.)
