A solid knowledge base in English studies is a major strength of the English Department major degree programs. Students—whether planning to pursue graduate school, teaching careers, or any number of other careers for which the English major prepares them—complete a minimum of 39 hours in upper-level English courses.
Students in the English major choose a minor, which helps them to further pursue their specific goals. Students in education programs complete 44 hours in education courses to enable them to walk into public school classrooms ready to teach.

Federal Direct Student Stafford Loans is a common source of college loan funds. There are two types of Stafford loans: subsidized and unsubsidized.
SUBSIDIZED STAFFORD LOAN
Subsidized loans are need-based, and the federal government pays the interest on these loans while you are in school. You become responsible for the interest at repayment - which begins 6 months after you drop below half-time enrollment.
If you do not qualify for Subsidized Stafford Loans or need more money than the subsidized program can offer, then you may qualify for an Unsubsidized Stafford Loan regardless of your family income.
UNSUBSIDIZED STAFFORD LOAN
Unsubsidized loans are not need-based, and you are responsible for all of the interest that accrues on the loan, including while you are in school.
- You must have submitted a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
For Subsidized Stafford Loans, you must have financial need as determined by the Office of Financial Aid.
You must be a U.S. citizen or eligible non-citizen.
You must be enrolled or plan to enroll at least half time.
