General English




The General English option provides Statewide Campus students with an alternative to the English Teaching emphasis. Logan Campus students should select one of the four emphases available to them. General English students will learn to research, write, and communicate effectively while gaining a broad understanding of English as an academic discipline.

Career Application

Students in General English may set up internships that combine their academic and professional interests.  They will graduate with transferable skill sets—problem solving, teamwork, and communication—prized by many employers in a variety of fields.
