Overview

The English students graduate from University of the Pacific with real-world skills and a passion for literature and knowledge that give them a unique perspective on the world around them as they step into their futures.

Discover English

English students find numerous opportunities to develop the power of individual imagination in and out of the classroom under the mentoring of dedicated professors.

  • Students will participate in thought-provoking reading and discussion in courses covering American, British, and World literature, including poetry.
  • Creative writing classes offer a chance for students to create thought-provoking works of their own.
  • Courses focused on professional writing and critical theory give students experience in nonfiction writing.

Career Paths

A major in English provides you with both the analytical and the communications skills you need to excel in virtually any profession. English majors learn:

  • Creative problem solving
  • Facility with the careful use of language, including close reading of complex material and the artful crafting of rhetoric
  • The ability to handle complex and subtle rhetorical situations in a number of employment contexts

These skills are increasingly in demand for most professions in the global business environment of the 21st century, yet they are often neglected in a strictly training-based professional education.
