The English Studies major is based on a broad model of interdisciplinary study in the fields that make up English Studies. Students are required to take course work in the different sub-disciplines of English Studies, including Literary and Cultural Studies, Rhetoric & Composition, and Linguistics and are encouraged to explore what Technical and Professional Writing, Publishing Studies, and Creative Writing might offer them. This flexibility in the degree allows both the student with interests in a variety of different fields in English Studies and the student who wants to specialize in a particular discipline to meet their goals.
The English Studies Major also offers opportunities for students to minor in a complimentary field or area of interest or to double major.
All decisions about your major and minor should be made in consultation with an English Department Academic Advisor.
