Majors > English
The English program at USAO is designed to offer students a broader base of knowledge in literature, composition, professional writing, creative writing, and foreign languages. Emphasis is always upon the power of words and their best use.
English majors may choose from several minors and/or concentrations, and their experience is further augmented by the opportunity to learn special tutorial skills in the Writing Center and participate in individually designed practicums.
Graduates are well prepared for immediate careers in a variety of areas such as public school teaching, publishing and editing, and business writing. Those who elect to continue their studies in graduate school are especially well prepared to do so.
In addition to the 39 hours of required courses and a selection of 12 hours from the elective courses list, students must complete the foreign language requirement that consists of four sequential courses in one language.
