English, Bachelor of Arts Degree

With a strong commitment to the arts and humanities, as well as to developing the essential skills of analysis, inquiry, research, and expression, the English department prepares students for a variety of professions that range from teaching to law, publication to management, public administration to technical writing. In the major, students can specialize in literature, writing, language and linguistics, or secondary teaching.

Students can major in one of four areas of specialization leading to the BA in English:

  • Literature
  • Writing
  • Language and Linguistics
  • English for Secondary Education

We offer six areas of minor specialization for students majoring in other fields:

  • Literature
  • Writing
  • Language and Linguistics
  • Dramatic Literature
  • Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL)
  • Literature and the Environment

If you're ready to declare English as your major or minor, or just have more questions, make an appointment to talk with one of the English Department's academic advisors.
