Overview

English graduates at Brandeis University help to ensure society’s cultural inheritance even as they contribute to that culture—as creators, as intelligent consumers or both. Among our graduates are businessmen and women, scientists, professors, lawyers, filmmakers, television producers, psychologists, fiction writers and poets, literary agents, and social activists.

The programme

In addition to being inherently pleasurable and intellectually exciting, a major or minor in English will help you develop important skills. English students learn how to read carefully and closely, write skillfully and stylishly, and argue analytically and critically. These communication skills are in high demand. Studying English can help you perfect your understanding of a language you already use and enhance your appreciation for cultures you inhabit and/or encounter.
