ACADEMIC MAP (Effective Summer 2016 and after)

This map is a term-by-term sample course schedule. The milestones listed to the right of each term are designed to keep you on course to graduate in four years. The Sample Schedule serves as a general guideline to help you build a full schedule each term. The General Education and Elective courses must be selected to satisfy all area and multicultural requirements unless your program meets these requirements with major courses. Milestones are courses and special requirements necessary for timely progress to complete a major. Missing milestones will result in one of two types of map registration stops. The first level (Degree Map Off-track) is placed following grade posting if the student has missed a milestone (course and/or GPA) for the first time in the major. If a student is in non-compliance with milestones for two (2) consecutive semesters (excluding summers), a Major Change Required stop is placed on the student's registration.

The English Education major is a combined Bachelor’s/Master’s teacher preparation program designed to prepare personnel to teach English in secondary school settings (grade 6-12). The program includes required coursework in literature, linguistics, composition and rhetoric, and speech, as well as coursework in teaching methodology. The English Education major is a limited-enrollment major that only admits new Juniors in fall semesters. A departmental application is required to be considered for admission. The application deadline is April 1st. Eligibility is based on the requirements outlined on the college website:
