Undergraduate
 
Study in the field of English offers a general humanistic education as well as training in communication and analytical skills that are essential in most careers. An education in English enables students to read closely and critically, to think analytically, to write and communicate, to weigh values, and to understand different peoples and cultures. A B.A. in English can lead to careers in public relations, publishing, radio, theater, and library science.

For more information regarding careers for English majors, please see "What Can I Do with This Major?"
 
Graduate
 
The department is pleased to offer M.A. and Ph.D. candidates a diversity of intellectual , pedagogic, and community opportunities as well as those resources and facilities necessary to take advantage of such opportunities. We believe that our degree programs strike a crucial balance by combining a generalist vision with a flexible accommodation of individual interests.
