Undergraduate study in English is designed to build an inclusive knowledge of literature, to develop skills required for the critical interpretation of texts, and to teach the principles of critical and effective writing.  Degree offerings include a major, a literature minor and a creative writing minor.  The major prepares students for a wide range of careers in the fields of teaching, writing, law, business, and advanced study in literature and culture.  In addition, our majors benefit from the resources provided by New York City, the center of literary publishing worldwide.
