Bachelor of Arts in English

The study of literature is the study of culture itself: the stories and myths, values and ideals, struggles and conflicts that shape our understanding of ourselves as individuals and of our relationships in the world. 

Courses in the English Department are designed to increase students' literary, cultural, and critical awareness and help them develop the skills necessary to express their ideas effectively, both orally and in writing

In addition to literary studies, we offer courses in writing, rhetoric, and public speaking.

The department offers undergraduate coursework at three levels.

Some 400-level courses focus specifically on professional development, whether for the world of work or graduate school. Students may take them while taking 300-level courses.

All 100-level and most 200-level and 300-level English courses require that students write supervised examinations, demonstrating the ability to meet the department’s requirements.
