Faculty members in the Department of English provide students with a rich variety of learning experiences as they engage literary texts and develop as writers. The English major prepares graduates for a broad range of professional careers––in law, in secondary education (certification requirements completed within the undergraduate program of study), in publishing (writing and editing for books, magazines, journals), in traditional journalism (print and broadcast media), in advertising, in public relations, and in business (marketing and management). Furthermore, English major graduates often pursue advanced degrees that prepare them for teaching at the community college or four-year college/university level.

For advanced study in the writing field, the Department of English also offers a Master’s degree in Writing Studies; the program can be completed on a part- or full-time basis.
