English minors gain an understanding and appreciation of literature.

Studying literature and the English language teaches students to write and communicate effectively, to think critically, to see all sides of an issue, and to question generally accepted conventions. English courses offer individual and societal insight.

Our program prepares prospective teachers with an effective teaching background and provides prospective graduate students with the critical skills and historical understanding necessary for successful advanced study.
