Study of the English language is, to some degree, fundamental to every academic and professional endeavor. As English speakers, our language shapes and populates even our thoughts. As career preparation, English may well be the singular academic pursuit which opens endless possibilities.
More than just reading classic and popular literature from Beowulf to Harry Potter, the study of English involves honing our use of the spoken and written word, and the ability to assess the validity of what we read and hear.
Students are invited into the world of research and literature; and the program provides excitement in honing abilities as writers, readers and critical thinkers. Therefore, the study of English is an exceptional platform from which to embark on careers as journalists, editors, librarians, professors, public relations professionals, marketers, actors, dramatists, or lawyers. A solid foundation in English can also provide entry into a variety of graduate school options.
