Undergraduate Learning Outcomespic

The Department of English has structured its undergraduate programs to provide students with opportunities to  develop critical reading, writing and thinking strategies. In accordance with principles articulated by the Modern Language Association (MLA) and other professional organizations, English majors will:

  1. read attentively, closely, and critically;
  2. write thoughtfully, coherently, and persuasively;
  3. develop and challenge their own thinking through scholarly research.
  4. Candidates seeking initial and permanent/professional certification will also meet NCTE standards for the preparation of teachers of English Language Arts.
