English

The English program prepares students for careers that require cultural breadth, strong writing and research skills, and an ability to read, synthesize, and analyze written material.

Literary courses include, but are not limited to, in-depth studies of British and American Literature; Renaissance Literature; African-American Literature; World Literature; and Children’s Literature. Writing-intensive courses in fiction and poetry also are offered. Students also can pursue a concentration in Professional Writing, and independent study opportunities are available.

The English major and minor are associated with the Department of English. A major requires 10 courses and a minor requires six. Students may also seek Secondary or Upper Elementary Education Certification in English. Additional course information is available in the W&J College Catalog.
