English - Secondary Education, B.A.

  • Application Deadline
  • 48 months


The English major’s mission strongly promotes the overall mission of Cedar Crest College, in particular the College’s broad principles of “scholarship, liberal arts, creativity,” “women’s leadership,” and “global connectivity.” It does so by offering students a solid fundamental background in American, British, and World literature; by allowing students to develop strengths in scholarly and creative writing; by inviting students to explore more specialized areas such as linguistics and critical theory; and by providing opportunities for students to ground their understanding of literature within the context of the location that produces it, via study abroad experiences. The major is designed to prepare students for graduate study and for careers in teaching, publishing, law, business, government, journalism, advertising, and other language-related fields. More generally, the discipline of English enables students better to understand and respond to their world through the spoken and written word, both within the academic setting and beyond.
