The English Department at USI offers a Bachelor of Arts in English Teaching and a Bachelor of Arts in English with a concentration in Creative Writing, Literature, or Professional Writing and Rhetoric.
English Teaching Majors and English Majors with a concentration in Professional Writing and Rhetoric may choose to complete a Bachelor of Science instead. The difference is a two year foreign language requirement. English faculty recommend the BA with the language requirement, because the study of foreign language gives students an advantage in an increasingly competitive global marketplace and diverse society.
Starting in the fall semester of 2014, degree requirements may have significantly changed due to the launch of the University Core 39. Students entering the University of Southern Indiana before the fall semester of 2014 may be required to complete the old University Core Curriculum. See previous versions of the USI Academic Bulletin for degree requirements for previous bulletin years.
