The English Major is designed to convey to students a broad historical knowledge of English, American, and other Anglophone literatures, a sophisticated habit of critically engaging literary and cultural texts, a shared understanding of major problems, trends, and methods of literary and cultural analysis, and the ability to pose questions and organize knowledge in productive and original ways. While offering students clear direction on how to profit most from their study within the English department, the major also seeks to encourage students to assume an enduring habit of questioning and intellectual self-articulation. After graduation, English majors pursue a broad variety of careers in academia, law, education, journalism, the arts, business, medicine, and other fields.
