English majors are introduced to a broad range of introductory and advanced courses, and with independent study and research opportunities, including a senior seminar. The course of study also introduces students to important literary texts and the cultural and historical forces that have shaped these works. It allows students to explore the complex intellectual, philosophical, aesthetic, and moral issues reflected in literature, enabling them to develop their verbal and analytical skills and facilitating a deep appreciation of literature as an avenue to a broader vision of the human condition. The English major provides a strong undergraduate liberal arts education and serves as an excellent foundation for a number of careers, including teaching, writing, publishing, journalism, business, and law.
