Transfer Credits

The English department welcomes students who have AP, IB, PSEO, or CLEP credits in English and students who have completed an AA in English or Literature at another institution. Basic guidelines on transferring credits for an English major or minor are as follows:

  • Students may transfer up to four English literature credits at the 100-level (or 1000-level) toward an English major or minor, where these credits align with existing English courses.  In other words, courses that have no equivalent course in our department may not be able to transfer as credits for the English major or minor. With approval from the Registrar, these courses may still transfer as credits toward graduation. 
  • Students may transfer in 200-level (2000-level) English credits toward an English major or minor, where these credits align with our existing courses. In other words, courses that have no equivalent course in our department may not be able to transfer as credits for the English major or minor. With approval from the Registrar, these courses may still transfer as credits toward graduation. 
  • If an English course taken at another institution is counted for an INTG 100 course, it cannot also be counted as credit toward an English major or minor.
  • If students want to transfer in credits for the English major or minor above the 200-level, they should contact the chair of the English department.
On-campus Opportunities

Opportunities to get involved.

Internships, Service Learning and More:
  • Consider some of the many internship opportunities available through CSB/SJU.
  • “A demonstrated capacity to think critically, communicate clearly, and solve complex problems is more important than [a candidate’s] undergraduate major.” 
  • Service learning, internships, ILPs, and practicums also provide opportunities for real world experience throughout the major.
  • Our pre-professional programs provide training for interviews and applications.
  • View our graduate database to see what our recent grads are doing.
  • Recent majors have accepted internships worldwide in places like Guatemala, Bahamas, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and China. English majors have won the Minnesota Public Radio Gary Eichten News Fellowship and served in volunteer programs like Teach for America.
