The faculty in the Department of English at Troy University deliver an English major, an English minor (with specialization in literature or creative writing), and a graduate-level TESOL concentration (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) as part of the Master of Education program. For course descriptions, please click the "Course Descriptions" link to the left or view the university catalog.
Graduates of any of the English Department's programs will develop a foundation for advanced, graduate-level study in English or for the teaching profession. The B.A. program will provide the background needed for work in such fields as law, theology, philosophy, medicine (in conjunction with preparation in science and mathematics), library science, communications, media technologies, and business. The graduate-level concentration in TESOL provides the background for the teaching of ESL/EFL (English as a Second Language/English as a Foreign Language) or for further graduate work in TESOL/Applied Linguistics.
The Department and its faculty also are dedicated to playing a vital role in the university's General Studies Program, for which we provide students with a solid basis in core courses.
