Department of English Graduation Requirements

General Graduation Requirements

All options in the major are evaluated continually in an end-of-program assessment process that provides early feedback to students based on a checklist of his or her strengths and weaknesses in English 302 Writing about Literature. In all options, students are required to submit a sample paper from English 302 and from a second senior literature course (for Creative Writing majors, a sample of writing from English 251 and from an advanced creative writing workshop course) and complete an exit questionnaire before graduation.

Majors in all options must have two [M] (writing intensive) courses in English. Of the 120 total credit hours required for the bachelor’s degree at WSU, forty credit hours must be in upper-division courses.

For course descriptions and suggested four-year degree sequences, see the current WSU catalog.
