English Area, B.S.

Degree offered at: Campbellsville

Hours Required: 60 (BA Program) or 66 (BS Program)

The main purpose of the area in English is to enable students to prepare for teaching English in grades 8-12. However, students in English not seeking teacher certification may elect to pursue the area instead of a major. A minor is not required.

Students pursuing the area in English may earn either the Bachelor of Arts degree or the Bachelor of Science degree. To receive the BA degree, they must have at least twelve semester hours of credit for modern foreign language studies. Four three-hour courses in one language or two three-hour courses in each of two languages will fulfill the requirement. The requirement may be waived for students based on proficiency certified by both oral and written tests administered by the modern foreign language faculty. The requirement will be waived for students whose native language is not English. To receive the BS degree, students pursuing an area in English do not have to take foreign language courses but must complete six hours in English in addition to the hours in English required in the BA program.

The English faculty recommends that students who expect to enter graduate studies in English or a related field choose the Bachelor of Arts option.

60 hours are required for the BA degree; 66 for the BS. The BA requires 12 hours of foreign language not included in the 60 hours shown here.
