Transfer Track/English (ENGL-AA)

AREA OF CONCENTRATION: The purpose of the English transfer track is to prepare students for entry into upper‐division studies in English. A Bachelor of Arts in English will prepare students for further studies in English, writing, and literature as well as other graduate programs, including law school. A Bachelor of Arts in English can also pave the way for careers in journalism and other fields that require communications skills. The English transfer track also prepares students who wish to enter English education programs and become certified to teach English on the middle school and high school levels. Students are encouraged to be familiar with the admissions requirements at the university they plan to attend.
