Want your education to pay off? Choose Team English!

English courses will prepare you for law school and for careers in teaching, technical writing, publishing, public relations, marketing, finance, news media, and the arts.

The Department of English strives to contribute to the liberal arts education of all students. Through its English composition courses, the department seeks to ensure that all students develop effective written communication skills. Courses in English introduce students to different genres, periods, and methods of interpreting literature.

Students can earn the English Language & Literature (BA) degree, with three optional concentrations with a more specific focus: Teaching Licensure Concentration (Secondary English 9-12), Pre-Law Concentration, and Creative and Professional Writing Concentration.
