Powerful, persuasive writing, sharp analytic skills, and creative, flexible thinking are essential abilities for tomorrow's leaders and professionals. English majors cultivate these abilities through the study of the literatures, language, and cultures of the United States, Britain, the English-speaking world, and beyond.

Literature, the practice of writing, and the analysis of language develop attentiveness and mental agility by presenting us with complex perspectives on social and artistic movements, historical events, cultural phenomena, and communication patterns. These abilities and knowledge stand on their own or complement work in other disciplines, from medicine to law, psychology to engineering, visual arts to business.

Our classes prepare students to engage the world knowledgeably and effectively so that they may go on to lead rich lives as professionals, members of their communities, and global citizens.
