About

Course Description

If you choose to major in English, you’ll follow one of three tracks: the literature track, the creative writing track, or the professional writing track. Depending on your chosen track, you’ll gain experience with the latest literary techniques and have opportunities to present your work to the University community.

Students of the English program from John Carroll University can submit their poems, short stories, photographs, or artwork for publication in the University literary magazine, The John Carroll Review, which is also student-edited. 

We believe that our students are more than the jobs that they will take; they are men and women who will live lives shaped by the power and beauty of imaginative uses of language.
