The English Department provides you with a depth and breadth of literary knowledge while teaching you to explore problems creatively, to be sensitive to life's diversity, and to read the world critically and thoughtfully.

To declare a major in English, please select a faculty member (not visiting) and request that the professor serve as your adviser. Pick up the appropriate form from the Registrar's Office and take it to the department chair for approval.

If the adviser you selected cannot take any more advisees, then you will decide on a second choice with the chair. Your choice of adviser is extremely important as he/she will help you design a major program and provide advice, and/or recommendations for jobs and graduate school.
