English majors are trained to think broadly and deeply across a variety of topics, periods, styles, and methods. Students develop skills in reading, critical thinking, and writing while delving into one or more concentrations. These concentrations include Literature; Creative Writing; Language and Linguistics; Rhetoric, Writing and Media; or the option to Design Your Own. The BA in English curriculum provides a background in historical forms of literature from around the world while giving students the freedom to choose from an array of electives. A degree in English is intended to provide a broad, open-ended education that can lead to many different careers, especially those requiring excellent communication skills and analytical thinking. Recent graduates have gone on to careers in business, teaching, publishing, television, film, advertising, public relations, insurance, government, public service, management, and law.
