Students must earn a grade of C or better in each upper-level course included in any major or minor area. A minor must contain 15 to 18 semester hours of course work with at least 9 hours of upper division course work. Courses taken to satisfy core areas A through E may not be counted as course work in the minor.
Students majoring in English are strongly encouraged to take their survey courses (ENGL 2121 , ENGL 2122 , ENGL 2131 , ENGL 2132 ) early. Survey courses, along with ENGL 3010 , should be the main constituent of the first eighteen hours taken in the major. To remain a major in good standing in the program requires a GPA of 2.25 in major courses. After the completion of eighteen hours of major level courses, this average in the field must be maintained. Normally a student would be given one semester to raise his or her average to 2.25 in order to remain in the program.
