BA in English

The B.A. in English offers students the opportunity to concentrate in:

   •  Creative Writing
   •  Literature
   •  Writing & Rhetoric

All English majors gain a breadth of knowledge of English literary traditions, including American and Anglophone literatures around the world. 

In the Creative Writing concentration, students develop their abilities to express themselves imaginatively in fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction. 

Students concentrating in Writing & Rhetoric hone their skills in writing clearly and persuasively for any audience or purpose. 

In all three programs, students gain an extensive knowledge of literature, a sense of the scope of English studies, and familiarity with important issues in their fields of concentration. 

All three programs require the completion of 33 credits in English courses numbered 100 or above. 

See advisement sheets for all three concentrations.
