The study of language and literature is the heart of a liberal arts education. The major program at Gallaudet provides not only an understanding of our rich literary heritage, but also offers an opportunity to develop the advanced reading and writing abilities necessary for anyone wishing to participate fully in modern society. A major or minor in English prepares students for graduate school, careers in education, professional, and creative writing, and for a variety of professional fields. A minor in Writing provides students with the critical thinking skills and information and digital literacies that are essential to employment in the professional world, as well as the exploration of their creative capacities. Students who major in English may also minor in writing, but courses cannot be double-counted.
Academic and Personal Integrity Policy: Students enrolled in English Department programs are expected to demonstrate academic and personal integrity in major coursework and interactions with faculty and peers, as specified in the university's Academic Integrity Policy and Behavior Codes. Violations of either will result in probation for the remainder of the student's major or minor coursework, in addition to other penalties deemed appropriate by the instructor and/or Major/Minor Review Committee. Further violations will result in dismissal from the major or minor, in addition to other penalties deemed appropriate by the instructor and/or Major/Minor Review Committee. Students may appeal such decisions to the department chair and/or university Academic Integrity Committee.
Gallaudet University is a federally chartered private and premier university for the deaf and hard of hearing since 1864.
