The writing and writing studies concentration is designed to offer a student supervised writing throughout the university career. Students may select courses which emphasize applied writing (technical and business writing), creative writing or the teaching of writing.
Majors must achieve a grade of “C” or above in ENGL 101 Writing Rhetorically and ENGL 102 Writing Rhetorically with Sources. Credit earned for ENGL 101 and ENGL 102 may not be applied to the major.
The Department of English will permit a major to use only one passing grade below “C-” to satisfy requirements in the English major. An additional grade below “C-” will require the major to take another English course.
Note: ENGL 489 or ENGL 493 should be taken after nine of the 15 credit hours in the concentration have been completed. Students may elect to take both courses and have both applied toward the concentration.
