The English Studies program cultivates advanced communication skills, with the primary object of study being the text – a medium of argument and persuasion, a body of myth, aspirational fantasy, self-delusion, propaganda, and reason. Over the course of your degree, you will study the cultures that are expressed, imagined, defined, and, in some cases, challenged in literature from Beowulf (the Anglo-Saxon dragon-slayer) to present day texts such as Harry Potter. Introductory classes, provide the composition and analytical skills you will need as an English major and are taught through a combination of lecture and small group seminars. Small group discussion is core to the program at every level. You will acquire valuable research and analytical skills through courses focusing on Literary History and Genre, Cultural and Media Studies, and Language and Rhetoric.

Over the course of a degree, we study the culture that is expressed, imagined, defined, and, in some cases, denied in the literatures in English from Beowulf (the Anglo-Saxon dragon-slayer) to the present.

This program is eligible to be paired with our concurrent education program for those students interested in pursuing their BA and BEd.
