The English Department offers a number of courses online, from General Education to upper-division options for majors and minors. By Spring 2022, we plan to offer a fully online major as part of an Online B.S. in English. (See MTSU's current list of Online Degrees.)
English Online Advising
Our English Online Advisor is Dr. Laura Dubek.
- "From my experience with my online professor, I can tell you that she wants you to
succeed in her course and prepare for your future career. She is a pro at operating
D2L, so be assured that she will put all the tools you need to learn the material
at your disposal. She will keep you updated with news posts, walk you through each
project, set up class discussions, provide examples of essays and assignments, and,
most importantly, be there to answer any questions you may have along the way. Trust
and follow her process, and you will truly enjoy this [Gen Ed] course!"
- "I was wary of taking an online course for this subject [ENGL 2020] and was worried that I wouldn’t get as much out of it as I would if the class were in person, but this wasn’t the case at all."
- "The course allows students to have conversations with each other. This was helpful because it offered students the ability to comment on and critique each other’s work."
- "My online professor has given me more feedback and encouragement on my work than any other professor I've had in three years at MTSU. She genuinely cares about her students and wants to see them succeed."
