Upon completion of ENGL 110C, intended English majors should apply to the chief departmental advisor for English to declare the major. Once admitted to the program, students take courses in two areas: the core (foundation courses) and the concentration. The core (22 hours) consists of a broad range of courses in several areas of English.
The concentration (15 hours) at Old Dominion University is one of six areas of concentration (creative writing, journalism, linguistics, literature, professional writing, teaching) within the overall Bachelor of Arts program and allows the student to pursue that area in depth. In addition, students in all concentrations have two free electives (6 hours) in English at the 300 or 400 level. Because requirements sometimes change, students should consult the latest course requirement lists available in the department office. All majors must take an English writing intensive (W) course to graduate. Majors in the literature, creative writing, and linguistics concentrations should consult their English advisor regarding the writing intensive requirement. Students must maintain a grade point average of 2.0 in the major to graduate.
