Students in labIn the English Department you can study British, American, and Canadian literature, and writing. We have several degree options: a four-year Honors Specialization in English Language and Literature, a non-Honors Specialization, a Major, a Minor, and a special Minor for Teachers. Not sure which you want? No problem! You can easily switch from one module to another. Not an English major? No problem! You can take English courses as electives in any program. We’re flexible that way.
