Sample Degree Map for B.A. English
The B.A. English degree offers a broad education in the literature of current and historical times and cultures, emphasizing critical reading and thoughtful writing. Traditional literary and historical analysis of fiction, poetry, and drama is basic to the discipline; however, that study may be extended in many ways. Options include film, cultural studies, language study, pedagogy, and creative writing. Graduates of the department are employed by journals, publishers, business firms, arts organizations, and schools; some also go on to graduate programs in English, education, American studies, journalism, law, social work, and creative writing.
