The Department of English provides students with opportunities to develop skills in written and oral communication; to gain knowledge of American and British literature, world literature, and major literary forms; and to gain experience in creative writing. All courses are open to non-majors except ENGL 3000 and ENGL 4700 .
The study of English language and literature not only prepares students for teaching on all levels from elementary school to college but also equips them to assume positions of responsibility in business, industry and government as managers and supervisors, personnel specialists, consultants, analysts and editors, among other important leadership roles. English is widely recognized as a foundation discipline for many professions, such as law, journalism, theology, psychology and international diplomacy.
To be an English major or minor is to experience the great literature and thought of our culture and to be prepared to enter the professional world with personal enrichment and insights into the workings of human nature.
