English majors at Southern Virginia University seek to master the essential skills of close reading, thorough analysis, insightful interpretation, and clear verbal and written expression of thought.


Key Features

The English major at Southern Virginia University enables one to see things in a broader context, to make informed opinions and judgments between seemingly disparate ideas, rather than merely learning to defer to outside authority.

Because of the small class sizes that allow and promote vigorous discussion and exchange of ideas, the diligent Southern Virginia English major becomes thoroughly prepared for graduate school and for careers requiring careful reading, orderly and clear thinking, and persuasive, clear, and refined oral and written communication.
