By majoring in English, students are involved simultaneously with two activities that are essentially and uniquely human: language and art. The mission of the program in English at The University of Texas at Arlington is to educate students about the powers and pleasures of literary and other kinds of language.


The English at The University of Texas at Arlington provides students with an understanding of theoretical and analytical processes which enable them to assimilate a variety of textual materials representing many cultures and historical periods. Students will learn to read closely, critically, and with empathy. 

In addition, students will learn to conduct scholarly research and to produce clear and cogent arguments in both written and oral form. These skills are widely applicable for English graduates who seek out and create careers in the arts, education, business, research and development, government, media, and publishing.

The Department of English offers two degree options: a BA in English and a BA in English with Teacher Certification (BATCH). The distribution requirements for both degree plans include courses in literature, rhetoric, theory, and writing. 

In addition to the majors, the Department of English offers minors in English, Writing, Creative Writing, and Technical Writing and Professional Communication, as well as a Certificate in Technical Writing and Professional Communication for non-degree-seeking students. Furthermore, the Department of English frequently cross-lists courses with African American Studies, Disability Studies, Environmental and Sustainability Studies, Medieval and Early Modern Studies, Mexican American Studies, and Women’s and Gender Studies.
