The English language as a discipline is structured around concepts of rhetoric and grammar as they are used to express creative thought orally and in writing. Knowledge in these areas is generated by a study of current and historical rules of rhetoric, grammar and of current and historical works of literature. The term "creative thought" includes poetry, theater, narration and exposition in both oral and written form.
This concentration is aligned to a supplemental authorization in English that can be added to your future credential. See a concentration advisor for more information.
