    1. Program Details and Course Descriptions

      I would click on this page intuitively which would take me to a place that has what I need, but is not the best way to find it out. If I didn't know about the checklist I believe I would get stuck here and frustrated by how complicated it was.

    2. Mission and Learning Objectives

      not going to read this but good to have

      great wording here because it is broad and also expresses how useful a english degree is in a lot of different high-paying fields.

      words like "program" feel like they are so perfect to rope in parents... I know this from my mom asking me a thousand times what programs I could do here.

      Not to hate on teaching... but I think for someone that doesn't know what they want to take in school and is looking at English as a broad major to take, this fits into the "all you can do with an English degree is teach narrative"
