It's difficult to identify a single key experience that Undergraduate English Majors at UNC Charlotte all share. And yet there are central questions to which our majors pursue answers. "What does the text (a novel, a poem, an essay, a film, a website, a speech, a story, a brochure) mean? How do meanings change over time, across historical periods? How do we come to our own interpretations? What can we teach others? What does it mean to revise? How can we best use technologies to research, draft, edit, and publish our work?"
If these are the kind of questions that intrigue you, consider an English Major at UNC Charlotte.

Additional Resources for Students
Students are strongly encouraged to participate in an internship during their undergraduate career. Internships provide real-life work experience, so take a few moments to review the information and consult with the internship coordinator for additional information.
If, as part of your B.A. in English, you are seeking licensure to teach English in grades 9-12, you should consult with your advisor in the Department of Middle, Secondary, and K-12 Education for specific requirements. You can also download a teacher licensure worksheet.
