Bachelor of Arts in English

"Literature adds to reality, it does not simply describe it. It enriches the necessary competencies that daily life requires and provides; and in this respect, it irrigates the deserts that our lives have already become."
- C.S. Lewis

A Bachelor of Arts degree in English trains students to be attentive readers and effective writers, two skills that are always in demand. However, what sets an English major apart is the experience of being immersed in the world of ideas.

Majoring in English gives students an awareness and appreciation of the literature that has explored the meaning of the world we live in.

The English faculty are committed to providing a Christian context to these timeless works and encouraging students to craft great works of their own.
