We offer students skills that will never go out of fashion: critical thinking and creative problem-solving; the ability to conduct research; facility with language and written and oral communication; respect for diversity; and the capacity to explain complexities as succinctly as possible. Companies want to hire employees who can write clear, concise and effective sentences—and you will learn that with a major in English. We are a large and vibrant community dedicated to helping you become an outstanding writer and critical thinker. You can choose from four B.A. programs: English (focused on literature), English Education, Creative Writing, and Professional Writing. Our more than 60 faculty members (excellent teachers, researchers, and writers) will give you an education you will use for a lifetime.
