Overview

The Bachelor in English Education program offered by Utah Valley University provides opportunities for students to consider and practice the applications of effective language use in diverse situations: professional, pragmatic, social, political, and aesthetic. The English program emphasizes knowledge and use of standard English in all written work, yet incorporates an understanding that English is a desirably diverse and variable phenomenon. 

The courses of study in English are designed to familiarize students with much of the traditional canon of literature. They are also designed to provide students with the critical and ethical skills necessary to interrogate this canon, to incorporate and legitimize their own and others’ “different” voices, not just in the academy, but in any of the many situations in which language influences human activity.

Careers:

Employers expect clear verbal and written communication, critical thinking and reading, audience analysis, and persuasive presentations and research from their employees. English and Literature students often work as teachers, analysts, critics, librarians, creative writers, public relations specialists, lobbyists, copywriters, journalists, editors, technical writers, and professors. 

Language used well is an important part of websites, legislation, novels, document design, instruction manuals, screenplays, advertising, news reporting, etc. Students in English at  Utah Valley University are also well prepared for graduate work in law, business, and education.
