What will I learn?

Students majoring in English are introduced to a multitude of cultural, historical, political and critical perspectives as they pursue one or more of the following concentrations: British and Anglophone Literature; American Literature; Media, Rhetorical and Cultural Studies; and Creative Writing (fiction, poetry, or non-fiction). Regardless the concentration, students leave the major with increased research skills and heightened theoretical acumen. They also graduate with sharpened analytical abilities, and, of course, a deeper sense of what makes for effective communication, both in oral and written forms, all of which are in high demand in the private and public employment sectors. CONCENTRATIONS AVAILABLE: American Literature, British & Anglophone Literature, Media, Rhetorical and Cultural Studies, Creative Writing (fiction, poetry, or non-fiction), Professional Writing
