Each of these programs offers students the opportunity to study with our award-winning faculty, often in small classes that encourage class discussion and active participation.

English majors and minors receive personalized academic advising and select from a host of opportunities for real-world experience, including conducting research, working on The Tower (our literary and art magazine), engaging the community through service learning, traveling internationally with study abroad, and building job skills through internships.
