The Department of English at Fairmont State University instills the liberal-arts tradition in our students by assisting and supervising them in the study of languages and literature, the development of cultural understanding, and the mastery of writing and language skills. These efforts prepare students to engage the questions that all human beings confront—questions of self, society, nature, and ultimacy—and to articulate their responses to the world.

The B.A. in English is most effective for students who wish to pursue a law degree and, of course, prepares students for graduate study in English at the master’s level.  However our English students are set up for countless careers immediately upon graduation. English majors have the ability and flexibility to serve in many occupations highly valued by corporate America. 

These include:

  • Book editor
  • Technical writer
  • Magazine writer
  • Corporate blogger
  • Teacher
  • Lawyer
  • Speech writer
  • Screen writer
  • Script writer
  • Producer
  • Web designer
