Understand the world through and with language. As an English major, you will observe, analyze and interpret text while exploring the relationship between form, content and meaning.

Hone your critical and creative skills in small and engaged classrooms; work with world-renowned poets, playwrights and authors as part of the Kelly Writers Series; and see your work come to life in any of our three student-run publications.
