English (B.A., B.S.)
With a bachelor’s degree in English, students will gain knowledge of American, British, and world literature as they develop proficiency in written communication. It is an excellent choice for students who enjoy literature and want to develop the essential skills of reading, independent critical thinking, and polished writing and analysis.
Students may choose concentrations in either Literature or Creative Writing, and they may opt for either the Bachelor of Arts or the Bachelor of Science degree in either concentration. The BA degrees provide excellent preparation for students who are planning to pursue graduate study. The BS degrees do not include the modern language requirement, thereby permitting students more freedom to explore other areas of study. Literature courses require extensive writing and critical analysis of texts, as well as giving students a culturally rich and historically aware perspective. Creative writing classes introduce students to the genres of writing available to them and prepare them for the competitive world of professional writing.
