English Studies


Our English studies offerings are part of a liberal arts program. Our bachelor’s degree is often recommended as a pre-professional program and is the most appropriate concentration for you if you are hoping to pursue the study of language and literature at the doctoral level. Many students pursue this concentration for personal enrichment or in preparation for other types of careers or professional schools. English studies majors are generally successful wherever verbal and analytical skills are important.
