The work offered in English deals with several aspects of liberal education: the linguistic and literary history of Western culture; selected studies in non-Western literature in translation; human values; the relationships between cultures in the Southwest; and written and oral communication, both utilitarian and creative.

Students with other majors find courses in English valuable for their general educational development. In addition, the English Department offers supporting courses for the Native American and Indigenous Studies major, the Humanities major, and other courses in intercultural studies.

English advisors can help students plan courses of study preparing them for graduate or professional school; careers in business, industry, or government; careers in communications, theatre, or teaching.

Minors in Literature, Communications, and Writing are available for students majoring in other disciplines.

Although the four options provide a wide range of choices in coursework tailored to students’ career and graduate school goals, students in all options share a core curriculum. This common curriculum is integrated around reading, critiquing, creating, and producing texts:

  • Reading/Writing Texts-ENGL 268 
  • A lower-division non-western or Classical literature course (numerous choices)
  • A survey of British or American literature-ENGL 230  or ENGL 240 
  • An upper-division writing course-ENGL 315 , ENGL 363 , or ENGL 464
