Program Description

The Bachelor of Arts in English (120 hours) offers two concentrations fully online: literature and writing. Throughout their coursework, students will learn to understand multiple perspectives, make connections across disciplines, and critically evaluate, interpret, and synthesize information from various sources. Furthermore, students will learn to read critically, write effectively, think analytically, work collaboratively, apply technology, and communicate clearly. Students will have the opportunity to practice these skills as they work with professors on research projects or as they participate in one of the internships hosted by our department in producing the Cygnet (our literary magazine), publishing Connections (our First-Year Writing textbook) or the Vibrant Voice (our newsletter), or writing for social media, some of which are available to online students.

The English major prepares students for success in:

  • Graduate study (e.g. in English, library science, technical writing, and creative writing)
  • Professional schools (e.g. law, medical, divinity)
  • Careers in education, media, marketing, public relations, professional and technical writing, and many others.

In short, a degree in English will give students the foundation to thrive, solve problems, and succeed in their civic, personal, and professional lives. It teaches students to be creative, imaginative thinkers and problem-solvers and equips them to participate effectively in an ever-changing, information-based society.
