If you like to read, to think and talk with others about what you’ve read, to write and hone your writing, to catch and convey thought and emotion beyond yourself, English might be the major for you. English majors concentrate in writing or literature, but all are concerned with the power of words to enlighten, to move, to liberate, to discover, to breathe forth new realities.
English graduates become teachers, scholars, screenwriters, journalists, editors, copywriters, web designers, lawyers, policy-makers, entrepreneurs, poets… there are no limits.
Please join us! All events are free and open to the public unless otherwise noted.
