Become a Student

To major in English is to devote yourself to the study of culture, past and present; to books, their readers, writers, and publishers; to critical thinking and the interpretation of ideas in both written and spoken form. An education in English allows for a command of the written and spoken word that otherwise might be unavailable. It is this command that allows those who have pursued an education in English to find success in a variety of arenas through their ability to persuade and interpret, clarify ideas, think independently and creatively, and their overall commitment to the cultural repository that an English education offers.
