A Bachelors of Arts (BA) degree in English offers a wide range of learning experiences. Individuals who earn a BA in English pursue careers in editing, writing, research, teaching, advertising, and public relations, among others. The English Major allows individuals to focus on topics of personal interest while developing a strong background in English Studies.

In addition to courses, English majors can participate in the Club English, Sigma Tau Delta, Writers' Club, or Haiku Club. Students can also apply for various Scholarships and Writing Contests. We also have an English Undergraduate Studies Center where students can meet with faculty and each other or just relax. With over 400 majors, we also have one of the highest retention rates among departments in the University.
