The Bachelor of Arts in English allows students to focus on topics of personal interest while developing a broad background in English studies. All students take core classes, surveying English and American literatures and approaches to literary study. They also choose from a wide variety of elective courses in three areas (historical; writing and language studies; and genre, cultural studies and literary theory) and complete a capstone senior seminar. English majors can participate in the English Club and Sigma Tau Delta and earn various scholarships and awards.
At the undergraduate level, our programs prepare students for careers in professional writing, editing, publishing, public relations, and teaching, as well as for graduate and professional studies in language, literature, education, law, and communications.
