Degree Programs/Majors


This program provides students the opportunity to develop critical reading, thinking, analytical, and communication skills through the study of American, British, and world literatures, as well as English language studies.  Students will explore and discuss writers and texts from a range of literary periods and genres, understand connections between works and their cultural and historical context, and improve research and expository skills.  Students in this program have a unique opportunity to study writers and works with faculty who respect the biblical perspective and apply biblical principles to the analysis of those works, as well as learn fundamental techniques of literary analysis which will improve their own understanding of biblical texts.

This program helps students develop the thinking skills and values needed for careers in journalism, public relations, education, business, publishing, editing, law, and graduate studies.
