Why do students choose an English major? For the many things we study: language, ideas, and theories. We are really six overlapping sub-divisions under one umbrella—the English Department. We study literature, composition and rhetoric, linguistics, editing and publishing, English education, and creative writing.
What can you do with an English degree? Many things. Our graduates work as teachers (elementary through university, in the U.S. and overseas), editors, publishers, writers for television and movies, software publishers, lawyers, doctors, bankers—the list goes on and on.
Whatever combination of our six disciplines you choose to focus on, we'll help you develop communication skills, written and oral. And those skills will open many doors for you.
For more information about our programs, visit the pages along the top navigation, and feel free to stop by the department office in Siskiyou Hall 102 any time.
