Description of English
English is a major branch of the language arts with a primary focus on writing, reading, literature, and speech. Although
accurate use of the English language is essential to every college graduate, encountering the humanizing forces of languages
and literature is the primary objective for students in this major. An English major will gain skills in critical thinking and
articulate self-expression as well as knowledge of English and American Literature, language history and usage, and the
critical contexts that help us to interpret our own age as well as others. Although the program encourages breadth and
variety, it also offers ample opportunity for intensive study of particular interests, such as linguistics or creative and technical
writing.
