The study of English affords students the opportunity to master the crucial, interrelated skills of thinking, reading, and writing through the immersion in the manifold products of language.
Courses in linguistics and composition teach the skills necessary for the understanding and effective use of language. Courses in literature aid students in absorbing the full range of literary thought and art, thereby rendering them better able to understand themselves and their world. Courses in the art of teaching enable English majors or minors to transmit effectively the acquired legacy of their education to future generations.
The English department offers B.A. degrees, B.S. in Education degrees, and M.A. degrees in a variety of concentrations. Please visit the links below to learn more about our programs.
