Catalog 2015-2016 > College of Arts and Letters > Department of English and Writing > Four-Year Degree Plan for Major in Writing
Note that this is a sample four-year plan. There are other course sequences that will allow a student to graduate within four years as long as prerequisite courses are taken in the proper sequence. This sample plan does not guarantee course availability, and adjustments to students’ plans may be necessary if they are unable to take specific courses during specific semesters. Students who are placed into lower level FYW, MAT or other prerequisite courses will need to adjust their four-year plans accordingly. Similarly, students who bring in Advanced Placement, Dual Enrollment or transfer credit for courses will need to adjust their four-year plans. A minimum of a 2.0 GPA both overall and in the major is required for graduation. In addition to major requirements, all components of the Baccalaureate Experience must be completed in order to successfully graduate.
Total Credit Hours: 121-127
In the final semester of study, writing majors will submit to the department a portfolio of their best writing from each year of study. A preface should include discussion of the student’s growth as a writer. Department faculty members evaluate portfolios and select the most distinguished for awards.
