Senior Assessment RequirementSenior Assessment Requirement
All English Majors are required to submit a Senior Assessment consisting of selected papers written in English classes taken at UCCS at the 2000-level or above. (Students choosing the PTW emphasis in English have a different Assessment requirement. The PTW assessment is completed in ENGL 4090, the Senior PTW Portfolio class. Please contact the Director of the PTW Program, Baye Herald, for details.) The English department is revising its senior assessment process. Instructions about how to complete the senior assessment for students graduating in December of 2018 will be posted here by mid-November of 2018.
All English Majors are assigned to an advisor. Please see the list below to determine your advisor this semester. We encourage you to meet with your advisor if you want help choosing your English courses, to get approval and the required signature for your English assessment, or just to talk about all things English!

An English degree emphasizes one of the most positive advantages of a college education—the solid, adaptable communication skills that get you through university are attractive to potential employers.
