English majors who are also completing Lynch School of Education majors must fulfill more specific major requirements to demonstrate a broad range of knowledge within the discipline. In addition to the First Year Writing Seminar, the Literature Core, Studies in Poetry, and Studies in Narrative, these students must fulfill the following requirements:
- one Pre 1700 Class
- one Pre 1900 Class
- one course Anglophone or Ethnic American Authors
- one course Women Authors
- one course on the History of the Language/Grammar/Linguistics
- one course in Adolescent and Young Adult Literature
- two English electives
The department recommends that English majors completing a secondary education minor follow these guidelines as well.
To acquire sufficient knowledge across this spectrum, LSOE students should consider taking more general survey courses (e.g. Introduction to British Literature and Culture I and II, American Literary History I, II and III) to fulfill some requirements. Students with questions about the EN/LSOE requirements should contact Treseanne Ainsworth in Stokes S493.
