Bachelor of Arts Degree in English
The BA in English provides students with a broad foundation in British and American literature through a number of survey courses and then allows students considerable individual choice from a rich array of courses that add depth to their programs. All English courses value and hone analytical, writing and speaking skills; thus, an English major is excellent preparation for careers in business, law, medicine, and education, as well as for graduate study in literature.
