Bachelor of Arts in English

The English Department’s Bachelor of Arts degree in English Studies reflects the diversity of subject matter, methods, and purposes of this vital, constantly evolving field.

B.A. majors will have the opportunity to pursue the traditional concern of literary study—the careful analysis of canonized works—as well as encounter and analyze texts by members of traditionally marginalized groups and texts that are nontraditional or innovative in form and content.

We encourage students to design their course of study so that they can be active and capable members of the global community and effective contributors to the multicultural workplace. To these ends, the department is committed to promoting and supporting an intellectual environment in which minority writers, nontraditional texts, and a variety of critical perspectives are an integral part of the curriculum. Please see the link below, “BA Program Requirements and Options,” for details.
