Emphases for the B.A. in English
The literature emphasis (combining two former emphases, General Literature and Liberal Arts) allows you to study a wide range of authors, genres, and periods in English and American literature, as well as English-language literature produced in post-colonial and ethnic minority cultures.
The linguistics emphasis provides the opportunity for closer study of how language works and its connections with related fields such as anthropology, sociology, and psychology; the linguistics emphasis also leads to graduate study and careers in linguistics and teaching English as a second language.
The English teaching emphasis fulfills Idaho certification requirements and prepares students to teach in school districts around the country. A Minor Teaching Endorsement in English is also available.
In the technical communication emphasis, students learn to produce a wide variety of print and online documents for users in the computer industry, in the health sciences, and in many other fields.
The writing emphasis, with components in poetry, fiction, non-fiction prose, and courses in book arts, gives students an opportunity to write, design, edit and publish their own work. It also includes a degree track in Rhetoric, Composition, and Communication.
