The student learning outcomes for the degree are as follows:

  • Students display the ability to write critically, precisely, and persuasively, especially about topics relevant to their major field and their selected concentration.
  • Students demonstrate the ability to communicate knowledge of literary, linguistics, and rhetorical conventions and traditions, especially those of America and England.
  • Students can apply the appropriate research tools and methods to demonstrate critical understanding of their selected concentrations. 

To earn the B.A. with a major in English, you must fulfill the requirements of IPFW (see Part 8 ), the College of Arts and Sciences (see Part 4 ), and those listed below.

As you complete your degree, you will be required to submit clean copies of two papers to the department. The first paper must be from a course taken during the first 15 credits you count toward the major, and the second from a course taken thereafter and counted toward the major. Both papers should be from courses taught in the department, be appropriate to your concentration, and represent your best work. At least one should be based on research and include documentation. Please turn the paper in before the end of the appropriate semester and include a copy of the assignment, if it is available.
