English Major: Literature Concentration


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Academic Departments and Degrees

The English department offers an English major with four concentrations—linguistics, literature, writing, and general English studies—that effectively anchors earning in the integrated art, craft, and science of language. The major provides students a richly faceted set of skills with which to engage story, practice interpretation, and experience the cultural and historical diversity of language and literature. Students majoring in literature focus primarily on story, poetry, and/or drama—on the ways language shapes and reflects human experience. This concentration strengthens a reader’s attentive reading and analytical skills—excellent preparation for a number of careers, including law, business, editing, writing, library science, teaching, ministry, or public relations.
