Who It's For
The English program at the Westminster College Salt Lake City is ideal for students who are passionate about language and love looking for the best way to communicate their ideas. Our students are interested in thinking critically about the way culture influences the written word, producing original creative work, and analyzing literary and cultural texts, including books, comics, and film. Graduates of the program will be prepared for a wide variety of careers in fields including publishing, advertising, education, and nonprofit work.
- There are endless opportunities to hone your creative writing chops, from participating in workshops with published poets and novelists, to joining the staff of our nationally recognized literary journal, ellipsis.
- You’ll work closely with dedicated professors who regularly publish books, articles, poems, and creative nonfiction, and help guide you through the process of producing your own work.
- As an English major, you’ll be eligible to work in the campus Writing Center, gaining valuable professional experience in teaching and editing.
- Each year, some of the nation’s top poets come to campus for readings, class visits, and face-to-face meetings with students as part of the Visiting Writers Series.
