Course info

Summary

The Department of English offers several programs designed to give students a knowledge of their linguistic, literary and cultural heritage and to develop their skills as writers and critics. Each of the tracks within the major has its own requirements. These programs prepare students for careers in teaching, publishing, communications, and public and private administration. They also prepare students for graduate work in English and in a variety of other disciplines in which effective reading, writing and critical thinking skills are important, such as business, law and medicine.

At least half the work toward the major must be completed at New Paltz. Students must earn a grade of C- or better in courses used for an English major or minor. English Composition courses (ENG160, ENG170, ENG180, ENG206, ENG207) do not count toward the major, nor do courses taken under the S*/U* (Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory) option.
