The English program at the Houston Baptist University states the fact that the most powerful tool we have is language. English majors at Houston Baptist University focus on exploring both the artistry of words as well as developing the tools for critical thinking and writing. 


The English program at the Houston Baptist University states that whether it be a Shakespearean tragedy or a corporate report, those studying English can interpret the world around them and translate their thoughts into clear language, preparing them for the workplace, graduate study and a trajectory of lifelong learning. 

Our graduates enter the fields of teaching, law, professional writing, creative writing and business as they take their ability to interpret language with them into artistic, professional and personal endeavors. Beginning with a concentration on poetry, drama and prose, and including courses in the Great Texts as well as American and British literature, English majors master both the classics and contemporary works while developing their skills in oral and written communication.

Graduates Testimonials

From our recent graduates:

“Studying English at Houston Baptist University is one of the best choices I could have made during my collegiate career. The decorated faculty department, thought-provoking lectures, and intimate class sizes are few of the many exciting things that the program has to offer. Most importantly, it has been special to continue cultivating relationships with professors who I have grown to admire greatly.” 

“I spent years trying to figure out what I wanted to do with my education and my future. I worked (and played) and tried out many of the various educational institutions that Houston had to offer. 

I sat for my first class in Continental Literature at HBU, and it was like clicking into place that last LEGO I had been scouring my room for hours for to make my masterpiece whole. I wanted to study English, and I wanted to study it with the professors at HBU. The three years from start to finish with HBU’s English department were an experience I will never forget and will forever cherish. Though I was elated to have finally graduated in May of 2010, I was certainly saddened my time with my professors was over. Now, I own and run General Academic, an academic consultancy, with my business partner.  

I have written two books, one on Houston’s schools (private and public) and one on the ISEE (a private school admissions test). We have opened an office in Dallas, and we will be opening more in the future. In the end, I’m beyond thankful for my education at HBU’s English department. The professors and my classmates helped shape who I am and will continue to shape who I will be.”
