The term "English" encompasses several related areas including the study of the English language, the practical skills of using it, and the literature created from it. The department offers courses in basic and advanced language skills, including technical and creative writing; for students with special needs, reading and writing laboratories and developmental courses are available. Literature courses offer instruction in the understanding and analysis of "classic", popular, and contemporary works, including Continental and Asian, and their historical and cultural contexts. A student majoring or minoring in English may opt for the traditional liberal arts program, an education program, or a writing emphasis. By developing the practical ability to think, read, and communicate effectively, a major in English provides excellent preparation for business, teaching, government and such professions as law and medicine. In addition, we offer a minor in English as a Second Language for those who plan to work with non-native speakers.

In preparation for graduate study in English, students should consult the requirements of the graduate school which they plan to attend. Those anticipating graduate study should plan to study a foreign language at the undergraduate level since that is often a graduate requirement.

The certification program in Teaching English as a second language combines the study of theoretical and applied linguistics with instruction in theoretical and practical issues related to the study of English by non-native speakers throughout the lifespan. The minor is offered within the Department of Languages and Literatures, College of Letters and Sciences, in concert the Department of Curriculum and Instruction, College of Education. The licensure program has been designed to meet the standards recommended by TESOL, Inc, the premier international organization for ESL professionals. In its Core Standards for Language and Professional Programs, TESOL states that "teaching English to speakers of other languages is an academic field requiring...special professional education and preparation for its practitioners." Furthermore, "each program should have courses which present basic theory and practice covering the second language and teaching paradigm..." Basic entry requirements are: (1) the possession of a teaching license or concurrent enrollment in a program leading to a license; (2) competency in a language other than English as determined by examination or successful completion of the 251 level (may be worked on concurrently with the minor); (3) a GPA of 2.15 or higher. The TESL minor consists of a core of 24 term units.
