“The English Department has, at its core, taught me to ask questions about human nature and the stories humans have to share with one another. It has taught me to value critically analyzing texts, and genuinely care about what a piece of art has to say besides the surface of the story. As an English major, I have not only grown as an artist, or as a scholar, but as a person as well.

“The English major has provided me many opportunities to improve my analytical skills and my ability to communicate effectively and concisely. The courses offered cover a wide variety of literary genres and also teach more practical skills such as editing and publishing in a professional setting. No matter what field of work I go into after graduation, I know I will use my education as an English major.”

“My English professors challenge me to read between the lines and gather multiple meanings, whether they be the author’s, my own, or someone else’s with a different perspective from mine. This program fosters my ability to read closely, think critically, communicate my thoughts with clarity, and write with precision and beauty. Ultimately, the English program helps me to develop and be confident in my own beliefs and to search for Christ in every text I read.”
