Too often, the study of English is dismissed with questions like these, labeled an impractical discipline out of touch with contemporary concerns. At St. Thomas Aquinas College, students in the English program learn to appreciate literary study as a vibrant and dynamic pursuit essential to communicating in a modern world.

English majors from the St. Thomas Aquinas College develop an understanding of, and an appreciation for, the ways in which language and literature shape human cultural and social experiences. Course offerings cover a wide array of English and American literature (from the monsters and heroes of Old English epic to the experimental creations of contemporary American short fiction); a full range of forms and genres (including, prose, poetry, drama, film, and emerging media); and a variety of literary critical methodologies. 

Students also have the opportunity to earn their teacher certification for grades 7-12 in STAC’s adolescence education program.Moreover, while the English faculty is committed to acquainting majors with the works of traditionally canonical authors and a robust sense of literary historical periodicity, they are equally devoted to familiarizing students with the works of historically under-represented groups. 

Grappling with this panoply of texts and approaches, our majors hone their abilities to read closely, write persuasively, and think critically. Equipped with such analytical skills and fortified by such habits of mind, what can’t an English major do?
