Students must complete the requirements of the English core plus one of the major concentrations. In addition, students are required to develop a portfolio of written work that represents significant successes in their career as an English Major at Berry College. This should be completed during the term just prior to the student’s graduation and must be approved by department faculty. All majors should consult with their advisor, the Department chair, and/or the department’s Curriculum Committee Chair for more information about the portfolio assessment.
Students planning to become certified to teach English in public secondary schools must complete an English major with a concentration in secondary education and a dual major in secondary education.
