College of Humanities and Social Sciences

For Undergraduate Students

The BA in English is a versatile major with seven specialized concentrations that are designed to meet students' individual interests and career objectives. English majors can pursue honors in the major, a special option in comparative literature, and a program in conjunction with the College of Education and Human Development that allows them to complete at the same time their BA in English and their licensure requirements to teach English at the secondary school level in Virginia.

Information on this page serves current and future majors in English, students interested in taking one of our minors and students taking English Department general education courses. Students are encouraged to consult the Degrees and Certificates page to learn more about the major and minors offered by the department.
