By reading a wide range of texts critically and creatively, you develop writing, thinking and verbal communication skills that will serve you throughout your life and in any line of work. The courses you take examine works of literature and other media in their most important contexts: historical, cultural, linguistic, socio-political and philosophical.

Develop your own narrative

Take one of a wide array of interdisciplinary courses that combine literature with environmental studies, film, history, music, foreign languages and more. Interested in Irish literature? Study abroad in Ireland—or Italy, Denmark or India. You can also meet outstanding visiting artists like Art Spiegelman, David Sedaris and Margaret Atwood, without ever leaving campus.

The next chapter

English majors at Connecticut College have gone on to become physicians, choreographers and Hollywood show runners, as well as writers, teachers and lawyers. In graduate school, they go on to study everything from public health, international relations and business to creative writing, education and law. You will be able to seize these opportunities because the creative and analytical skills you acquire are transportable and adaptable. Your understanding of human culture through literature and writing will empower you to succeed in a competitive world.
