English and Language Arts

The website for the Department English and Language Arts is currently being redesigned-please forgive any disorganization during this process, which should take place during the month of October 2016.

Whether it's a seminar in Renaissance studies, an advanced fiction-writing workshop, or filmmaking, journalism, animation, or a course in the African American novel, as a student in the Department of English and Language Arts at Morgan State University, you'll find yourself in a dynamic stimulating environment with knowledgeable professors.

The major in English requires a total of 54-60 credits, depending on the student's choice of concentration. The 33-credit CORE sequence includes courses in English, American, and African American literature, along with courses in literary criticism and the history of the English language. A six-credit foreign language sequence completes the core course program. Students may form concentrations in Literature and LanguageCreative WritingLanguage Arts, or Pre-law, and minors in Journalism, or Film and Digital Storytelling by choosing appropriate courses from designated Groups.
