The English major provides an ideal balance between creativity and inquiry. Students may choose general literary studies, do a concentration in creative writing or popular culture, or get certified in secondary English education. Student–faculty interaction is central and a highly interactive and collaborative environment is offered to help students develop skills necessary for success in many different career fields.
Students are trained broadly to identify, assess and confront the types of complexities that surface in all social environments, including the workplace. They develop the critical thinking and writing, creativity, and problem-solving skills necessary for a constantly changing world.
