About the Program

 

The English Major

 

The major in English can serve as the main component of an overall program leading to the Bachelor of Arts degree. The major is appropriate for students who do not seek teacher certification but who intend to pursue graduate studies in English or related fields (higher education administration, institutional research and development, law, philosophy, theology, etc.). The English major is also appropriate for students who intend to enter non-teaching careers requiring highly developed skills in analysis, interpretation, and communication (such as advertising, editing, investigation, management, sales, technical writing, etc.).
