Any student in good academic standing (i.e., a GPA of at least 2.0) can became on English major (or double major). Complete the Change of Academic Program Plan form and specify both plan (English) and subplan (concentration), so that we can assign you an appropriate adviser. (If you are considering more than one concentration, contact the Associate Chair of English so that we can match you with the best advisor for your interests.) If you are already an English major and you are considering changing concentrations, or an English major without a declared concentration, start by talking to your adviser. You should also talk to a faculty member in the new concentration; if you don't know who to talk to, contact the Associate Chair of English or the Department's Super Adviser for help. Then complete the Change of Academic Program Plan form: you will have to drop or swap the English major so that you can add the English major (plan) with the correct concentration (subplan).You can learn more about our concentrations by clicking on English Major on the left. You can print out a Degree Checksheet for the concentration(s) that interest(s) you.
