The bachelors degree in English aspires to foster life-long learning through expanding literacy and opportunities and an ever-widening understanding of ideas, people, cultures, and histories that shape humanity. The program emphasizes the varied language arts, particularly drama, literature, speech, and writing, and promotes critical reading of literature from a wide range of diverse authors and genres, as well as through analytic and creative writing. Through rigorous coursework, English majors develop their abilities to think clearly, reach well-reasoned decisions, improve self-esteem, and take active and responsible roles in their communities. Program graduates have the skills and competencies to pursue further studies, teach English/Language Arts at the secondary school level, or enter a wide range of career fields.
