English Studies

The majors in English Studies offer students a digital-age curriculum that focuses on the five skills considered most important for success on the job market: critical thinking, creative thinking, written communication, oral communication, and the ability to collaborate as part of a team. Our English Studies majors help students develop these critical skill sets by offering a regionally distinctive, transmedia curriculum that is innovative and cross-disciplinary. As part of their studies in one of our two majors--either Professional and Technical Communications or Literary Studies--students will complete advanced work including a capstone project and/or an internship tailored to their career ambitions.
