The English major introduces students to ethical, aesthetic, intellectual and cultural issues embodied in a wide variety of literary genres drawn from broad historical periods. The goal is to acquaint students with the English and American literary traditions, methods of textual analysis, the diversity of theoretical approaches to literature, and the history, structure and varieties of the English language.

A major in English requires 39 semester hours plus a final portfolio of work completed for the major. The department offers 200-level courses to introduce students to the British, American and world literary traditions as well as methods of literary research and analysis. Courses at the 300 and 400 levels concentrate on specific historical periods, genres, minority literatures and authors, and provide opportunities for in-depth study of literary texts.
