The English major is flexible and this plan of study offers only one possible path through the major. One of the advantages of a liberal arts education is the ability for students to take courses in a wide variety of areas, and we encourage English majors to explore other fields. All students should meet with their advisers regularly to chart a personalized course of study that best fits with their interests and needs. ^^ Please Note: Every student must fulfill all University, Departmental, and Essential Studies requirements.
