The Language Arts Division offers transitional courses in reading and writing and required general education courses in composition and humanities. The English major includes three types of courses: writing, literature, and cognate courses. Writing courses include English composition and creative writing. Literature courses consist of Introduction to Literature and two survey courses in both American Literature and British Literature and Introduction to Folklore. Cognate courses include additional literature courses as well as history, humanities, speech, and theater. An Associate of Arts Degree in English from Murray State is excellent preparation for a variety of degree fields including teaching, law and medicine.
