Undergraduate Majors and Minors
The English Department offers two majors and three minors for undergraduate students. In all our programs, students experience what makes Eastern special: small class sizes (usually between 15 and 25) taught by faculty who hold PhDs in their fields and who are active scholars and publishing writers.
Students who wish to become certified to teach English at the high school level should choose the B.A. in English Language Arts; students who wish to major in English but who have other goals (such as professional writing, law school, graduate school in English or related fields), should choose the B.A. in English. High-achieving students in either major may also be eligible to participate in departmental honors.
