Foreign Language Courses
Students with an English major (all concentrations) are required to demonstrate foreign language competency at the intermediate level. Intermediate proficiency requires completion of a 2000-level or above course in a foreign language that uses the Latin alphabet (e.g., French, German, Italian, Latin, Portuguese, Spanish) or a 1202-level course in a language that does not use the Latin alphabet (e.g., Chinese, Ancient Greek, Modern Greek, Hebrew, Japanese, Russian, etc.).
Major Courses (36 credit hours)
At a minimum, majors must complete 36 credit hours in English, including 12 credit hours at the 4000-level. No more than 12 credit hours in ENGL at the 2000-level may be counted toward the major. Additionally, at least 3 credit hours are required in a departmentally designated diversity course. English Majors not electing a specific Concentration must complete the following:
Minor Courses (18 credit hours)
A Major in English also requires completion of either a minor established at UNC Charlotte or an individually designed course of study consisting of a minimum of 18 credit hours in coursework selected from English and/or other departments, approved by the student’s Department of English advisor and undergraduate coordinator. Students with a second major in another department will be considered to have satisfied the minor requirement.
