The study of language and literature teaches students the decision making, problem solving, and sequencing that result in compelling communication. The intensive study of language and literature also enables students to understand human cultures and acquaints us with the world's most brilliant thinkers.


A degree in English opens the door to just about any career that requires clear thinking and compelling expression, including teaching, publishing, the law, public policy development and journalism.
