The English/Communication major is designed to educate students in a dual writing/literature track, in the context of the broad liberal arts, for careers in media (including public relations), law, library science, and government. Students are prepared for graduate work in communication and, with additional literature courses, are also prepared for graduate work in English.
Requirements total 53 hours. This includes 47 hours of English courses and 6 hours of related courses. Nine hours required in the major meet general education requirements.
