Requirements for the English Major Portfolio

In order to complete the English major and graduate from the University of Wisconsin-Platteville, you must submit a portfolio of some of your written work done throughout your college career. The purpose of the portfolio is to allow faculty to evaluate your writing competency (see the portfolio rubric). The portfolio is due the first week of your senior year. Please turn your portfolio in to the Humanities Department program assistant in Warner 323.

Be on the lookout in your email for information about informational meetings for the English Portfolio!  

We are transitioning to a new portfolio process!  Over the last two years, the English faculty have worked to establish new guidelines and instructions to adapt the portfolio for each of the English major emphases.  Below is the timeline of the transition, based on anticipated graduation dates.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your advisor.  

December 2017 Graduation Date:  Portfolio should already be turned in, using the old guideline:  OLD English Portfolio Guideline

May 2018 Graduation Date:  Portfolio should be turned in during the week of January 22-26, 2018.  Students may choose to use either the old guideline OR the new guidelines

December 2018 or later Graduation Date:  Portfolio should be turned in during the week of September 4-7, 2018.  Students must use the new guidelines.

You can print a copy of these instructions by clicking on the links, or obtain a hard copy from the Humanities Office in Warner 323.
