Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Academic Programs

A major in English requires 39 semester hours plus a final portfolio of work completed for the major. The department offers 200-level courses to introduce students to British, American, and world literary traditions as well as methods of literary research and analysis. Courses at the 300-level concentrate on specific historical periods, genres, minority literatures and authors, while courses at the 400-level provide opportunities for in-depth study of literary texts.

In addition to completing 39 hours in English studies, students are required to develop a portfolio of written work that represents significant successes in their careers as an English major at Berry College. This portfolio 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.
