English Language and Literature Program Policies

Students must earn a minimum GPA of 2.00 in the major, and the lowest acceptable grade is a "C" in all major and Stevenson Educational Experience (SEE) courses. No student, regardless of major, will be permitted to advance to the next course without earning a grade of "C" or better in the prerequisite course(s). When a grade below "C" is earned in a major course, the student must repeat that course.

Once students have declared their intentions to major in English language and literature, they are required to take all major courses at Stevenson University. Students must complete two semesters in a foreign language at the intermediate level or above. Full-time students interested in languages other than French and Spanish are eligible to participate in the Baltimore Student Exchange Program (BSEP) with area colleges and universities. Contact the Registrar's Office for information on this program.
