Program Description


The courses of the English major help students acquire an understanding of literature as a humanistic study; develop an appreciation and practical knowledge of the modes of literary expression, research, and criticism; and improve the ability to communicate effectively and intelligently.

The major offers all students an extensive exploration of American, British, and world literatures, writing and publication studies, literary theory, and related disciplines, including creative writing and film. By teaching students to read closely, think critically, and communicate effectively, the English major prepares students for work in a variety of professional and academic fields.
