English Major and Minor

Students major in English because they understand the power of language to reflect and to shape human experience. As readers, they become good analysts of style and content, character and theme, and they develop their own responses to whatever they read—whether they are reading Shakespeare’s Othello or a corporate annual report. As writers, they become masters of the principal tool of thought—language—sometimes becoming published writers before they graduate. This mastery of the written word—both as a critical and insightful reader and as an adept and creative writer—provides an excellent foundation for a wide range of professions and for a fulfilling life of continued learning.
