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.).
Concentration Required Courses (12 credit hours)
Students must satisfy the each of the following distribution requirements. Transfer courses will be considered, but only two courses at the 2000-level will be credited toward these distribution requirements. Approved alternatives at the 4000-level can be used to satisfy this requirement.
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 are considered to have satisfied the minor requirement.
