The English courses provide you with a solid introduction to a variety of genres of literary eras while developing your writing style and ability.
Take a class on the works of C.S. Lewis, Jane Austen or contemporary world literature. Research the literary greats, and collaborate with your peers and professors on a professional paper or conference presentation. Explore elective courses in foodie fiction, the fantasy genre and the Enlightenment.
English majors serve as (paid!) consultants in the Writing Center, write and edit for the Houghton Star student newspaper and Lanthorn literary magazine, and intern with the Office of Marketing and Communications to produce press releases and other content.
