The English program at Bellarmine University emphasizes writing as a fundamental means of learning and expression; close and creative reading of a culturally diverse range of texts; and critical thinking grounded in writing and reading. We offer an English minor and host the Film Studies minor.
English is a wide-ranging field of study. Historically, it gives attention to the great variety of texts that human culture has produced over centuries. Conceptually, it aims at developing deep abilities in reading and writing. The department reflects this in the variety of courses offered and in the sequential way in which we ask our majors to approach their study. That study begins with The World of Texts, which introduces the student to the basic principles underlying the discipline.
The 300 and 400 level courses presume the solid grounding in literary history and critical reading skills that our 200 level courses are designed to provide. In the student’s senior year, the major provides a distinct “capstone” experience through ENGL 450, the Integrative Seminar. In working through the variety of courses, students in English may expect to find themselves engaged in the reading of novels, short stories, poems, creative nonfiction, films and graphic novels, among other texts.
The Career Development Center at Bellarmine University serves all current students and alumni with a variety of career exploration and preparation services, such as; job search strategy, self and career assessment, résumé review, mock interviews, employer on-campus recruiting events and classroom presentations. We want Bellarmine students to be successful both academically and professionally.
