The English program offered through Nicholls Online currently offers three areas of concentration: Creative Writing, Literary Studies, and / or Professional Writing. Students will begin this program by registering for two gateway courses, English 220 and 266, which will provide a foundation for their studies. English 220 is designed to discuss the specific areas of concentration and employment opportunities for each so that students can make an informed decision prior to selecting an area of concentration. English 266 allows students to refine writing skills needed to successfully complete the program so that they can enter the program with confidence. Students will also find a wide variety of electives to choose from before entering their area of concentration, such as American, British, and / or World Literature and the literary genres of fiction, poetry, non-fiction, and even film. In keeping with national trends in the study of literary works, students will encounter a number of timely and attractive themes that address global issues. Students complete the course by registering for the capstone, English 405, where they can reflect on what they learned as an English major, further discuss career options, and complete materials necessary to enter the next phase of their career, whether the workplace or an advanced degree. We welcome you to the program at Nicholls and look forward to working with you.
Courses offered throughout the year during 6, 8-week “semesters.”
