**These courses do not have Miami University equivalents; they will be recorded as “T” courses on the student’s transcript.

Students can expect that ENGT courses will be counted as described here.

CORE:
ENG 298 Intro to Literary and Cultural Studies (3 cr)
EGS 301 Writing and the Professions (3 cr)

ENG 2620 British Lit from 1800 to present
Readings in Literary History: Survey (6 credits). You can count two of these three courses (up to 6 credits) toward this requirement. Additional courses count as electives in the EGS major.

Students can petition the Languages, Literatures, and Writing chair to count ENG 2500 American Literature (3 credits), which comes to Miami University as ENGT to count in this category.
ENG 1600 Intro to Literature

ENG 2300
Readings in Literary History: Genre (3 credits). You can count one of these two courses (3 credits) toward this requirement. Additional courses count as electives in the EGS major.

Note: Students can complete 6 hours in Genre and 3 hours in Survey to meet the 9 hours required in Readings in Literary History.
ENG 2230 Technical Report Writing

ENG 2211 Business Communication (GA)
Studies in Writing (6 credits): You can count one of these two courses (3 credits) toward this requirement. Because this area requires at least one course at the 300/400 level, you will need to choose a 300/400 level course that meets this requirement at Miami University.
HUM 2899 Capstone Seminar

ENG 2211 Business Communication (GA)
Multicultural Perspectives (6 credits): Students can petition the Languages, Literatures, and Writing chair to count HUM 2899 (3 credits) and ENG 2211 i(3 credits) n this category.

Depending on student’s choices at Clark State Community College, other courses completed as part of the Global Awareness area can be petitioned in this area. The chair of Languages, Literatures, and Writing will determine whether the petitioned course meets the category.

Note: Students cannot double-count courses in multiple categories in the English Studies major. Therefore, if a student chooses to count ENG 2211 Business Communication in Studies in Writing, the course cannot count in Multicultural Perspectives.

Students completing the Associate of Arts at Clark State Community College earn 60 credit hours that transfer to Miami University. Students completing the Ohio Transfer Module through their General Education credits will have completed Miami Plan Foundation I, II, III, IV, IV, and the Miami Plan Thematic Sequence. Advanced Writing is met through multiple options in the English Studies major.

At Miami University, transfer students will still need to complete: Intercultural Perspectives (3 credits), Experiential Learning (o credits), and Capstone (3 credits). These credits can be earned through completion of the major in English Studies. They will need to complete a total of up to 64 hours to reach the 124 required for the BA depending on what they have earned.

Table 4 shows how a student completes the English Studies major having completed 15-18 of the required 36 credit hours through their coursework at Clark State Community College. The table is merely a guide; student choices while at Clark State Community Colleges may require changes to how the student completes the degree at Miami University. In addition to the courses listed here, students will be expected to complete the required hours for graduation with a baccalaureate degree. Students are expected to meet with an advisor to discuss course selection and planning.
