The Department of English offers an intellectually engaging program of study that fosters skills in critical reading and analytical writing, creative thinking and effective communication. Leading to the Bachelor of Arts degree, concentrations within the major in literature, creative writing, journalism and professional writing, and theatre arts recognize students' differing interests and career paths. These concentrations include coursework that helps to prepare students for work in a variety of fields as well as for graduate work in the professions and in the discipline.
Many courses offered by the department are appropriate for students who have selected concentrations in English, writing, or theatre arts within the Bachelor of Liberal Arts program. In addition, the general minor in English and specialized minors in writing and theatre arts complement degree programs in other disciplines.
