The reasons to major in English are as plentiful as the doors the program opens. English majors learn the intellectual and practical skills employers and graduate schools want: proficient reading and writing, critical analysis and the ability to express ideas. Our program offers a variety of literature and writing courses, with small class sizes that promote open, invigorating discussion. Independent studies and internships let you further tailor the major to your interests and needs. You may also work on Corner Pocket, our student literary magazine, or be invited to join the English honor society, Sigma Tau Delta.
