Majors and Minors

Students pursuing work in English may seek the Bachelor of Arts degree, the Bachelor of Science degree, or a minor in English.

The English major degree programs are designed to increase understanding of and appreciation for language and literature, to expand critical thinking, reading, and writing skills, and to foster multicultural awareness, and to prepare students to participate more effectively within a democratic society. By doing so, these programs not only enrich students' lives, but can also prepare them for graduate work and careers in English, education, journalism, and a variety of other fields.

The English minor programs are designed to enhance any degree program by strengthening crucial critical-thinking and communication skills.
