The Department of English offers a major in English, a minor in English, and a combined major in English and Journalism.

Contrary to popular opinion, English majors do quite well on the general job market.  Businesses know that in addition to being good communicators, English majors are trained to approach problems creatively and from multiple angles.  Through careful course selection, the student may prepare for postgraduate work in literature and language; meet the English requirements for secondary teaching licensure; develop writing skills; or receive preparation for careers outside academia (including law and business).  Within the major, a student may explore many areas of special interest, such as composition pedagogy, creative writing, gender studies, literature of the American south, film as text, folklore, postcolonial literature, and literature in English by Native American, African American, Arab American, and Latino/Latina American authors, as well as the more traditional historical fields of English and American literature.  All of these areas help students develop the broad, deep, flexible understanding of human expression that will help them for the rest of their lives — both culturally and in practical terms.

This is usually accomplished through completion of a sequence of three world language courses: 1013, 2003 and 2013.

2

Not counting ENGL 0002, ENGL 1013, ENGL 1023, and ENGL 2003.

All English majors are strongly encouraged to complete a minor or a second major in one of the following: African and African American Studies, Anthropology, Art History, Classical Studies, Communication, Drama, European Studies, Gender Studies, History, Indigenous Studies, Journalism, Latin American Studies, Legal Studies, Medieval and Renaissance Studies, Middle East Studies, Music, Philosophy, Political Science, Psychology, Religious Studies, or in a world language (Arabic, French, German, Japanese, Russian, Spanish or any other language that offers a minor).

English majors are strongly encouraged to fill their elective hours with courses from the departments or programs of study listed above.

Note About Transfer Credit:  In order to receive a B.A. in English from the University of Arkansas, a student must take at least 24 hours of credit at the 3000 or 4000-level in this department.

Writing Requirement: All upper-division English courses require a research or an analytical paper except ENGL 4003 and the courses in creative writing (ENGL 3013, ENGL 4013, ENGL 4023, ENGL 4073). For this reason all students who fulfill the requirements for a major in English thereby fulfill the Fulbright College writing requirement.  In addition, 4000-level courses (except for those noted above) require more intensive research by, and more active participation from, students than 3000-level courses do and require each student to complete a paper that can be included as a writing sample with applications to graduate programs or professional schools.

Assessment Requirement: Every senior English major must take the program assessment exam administered by the department each spring semester to graduate. Exam results will not affect GPA, although the student’s score will be noted on his or her permanent academic record. This requirement may be waived in extraordinary circumstances by the department’s Director of Undergraduate Studies. Contact your adviser for more information.

Candidates may petition to enroll in a departmental graduate seminar. To complete the required thesis successfully, candidates should choose an honors thesis adviser as early as possible.  An adviser should be selected, and an Honors Agreement completed, no later than the first semester in a candidate's junior year.  Candidates who complete the honors program with merit will graduate with the distinction “English Scholar Cum Laude.” The distinctions of Magna Cum Laude and Summa Cum Laude will be awarded only for exceptional work and will be based on the candidate’s entire honors program.
