English

Bachelor of Arts

The Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in English is a literature-intensive program that trains students in critical thinking, advanced reading and analysis, and oral and written communication.  Coursework provides grounding in British and American literature as well as the practices and theory of literary studies and includes an emphasis on multiculturalism and diversity.  English majors gain valuable exposure to literary history and to texts, movements, authors, and cultural forces that inform and influence the literature under study, as well as to the various critical lenses through which literature may be viewed.  Considerable flexibility is offered in major course selection.  The Bachelor of Arts in English is excellent preparation for students planning graduate or professional work and/or careers in law, education, publishing, journal and magazine writing, creative writing, research, evaluation, technical communications, advertising, sales, library science, public relations, marketing, business, public service, and other areas where expert analytical thinking, writing, and language skills are increasingly valued.

Important:  English 3010 must be taken in the student's first semester as an English major; English 3010 may also be taken as a co-requisite with two other 3000-level or selected 4000-level English courses in the student's first semester as an English major.
