Bachelor's degree programs in English generally emphasize the study of literature and literary criticism. Some universities also offer specializations in creative or technical writing and/or programs to prepare students for certification as a high school English teacher. Community college students seeking a bachelor's degree in English are strongly encouraged to complete an Associate in Arts (A.A.) degree prior to transfer. Since admission is competitive, completion of the recommended courses does not guarantee admission. Students planning on careers as high school English teachers need to meet with an advisor.
