About

The English program of Rockford University helps students discover the practical value of critical inquiry and intensive textual analysis, consider how different cultural perspectives contribute to distinct ways of viewing the world, and appreciate connections among literary traditions and liberal arts disciplines.

Overview

Goals

The English program of Rockford University will:

  • Appreciate the ways in which literary study involves the individual in an exploration of ethical questions.
  • Develop ideas about literature through careful textual analysis, recognizing that literature has multiple interpretations.
  • Write essays that demonstrate the ability to think independently.
  • Be conversant with the evolution of literatures in English, fusing British and American literary texts with those of other cultures.
  • Understand the cultural specificity of literature and recognize the reciprocal relationship between literature and culture.
  • Demonstrate skills in using contemporary critical theories to enhance analysis of literary texts.
  • Actively engage in workshopping original creative work (Creative Writing Seminars).
  • Analyze and apply the craft of writing in multiple genres (Creative Writing Seminars).

Career opportunities

The major in English continues to rank among the premier majors for graduate programs in law, medicine, business administration, international relations, library science, and education. Moreover, the major not only prepares prospective secondary-level teachers, but it also provides the practical and academic foundation to pursue graduate studies in MFA and journalism programs. Professional writers can pursue careers, often as freelancers, in media relations, publicity, marketing, communications, and publishing, to name a few. The analytical and communication skills that all majors in English acquire provide career flexibility, which is crucial in an age that necessitates adaptability to rapid changes in the workplace.
