Students must complete 4 credits (8 semesters) of English to graduate. All courses listed in this section of the course handbook meet the English credit requirements for graduation. Courses are offered in the English Department at three learning levels, Regular, Honors, and Advanced Placement. Honors and Advanced Placement courses are intended to prepare students for college level literature and composition courses. They place high performance and production demands on students. Students may self-select into Honors after their freshman year. Freshmen placement in the honors and advanced placement elective courses are self-determined, but should be based on the following criteria:

  • Fluent language use, both oral and written;
  • Above grade level in reading;
  • Ability to work independently;
  • Ability to deal with abstract concepts in speech and writing.
