Find yourself correcting the use of there, their, and they’re? So do we..but the English program of the University of Minnesota is a whole lot more than homonyms or catching prepositional phrases. It’s critical thinking. It’s creativity. It’s interpretation.


Immerse yourself in a world of literature, composition and rhetoric with an English degree. You’ll prepare for diverse creative opportunities in professional settings, such as teaching, public relations, journalism, law, publishing, medicine, and the fine arts.

As language, reading, writing, and communication change and adapt to the features of an increasingly technologically based society, the importance of and demand for reading and writing skills increases. The University of Minnesota Crookston (UMC) is an applied learning campus, and, as such, our English degree is created to meet the needs of an ever-growing career market. The English program of the University of Minnesota combines both writing skills, to ensure a mastery of the applied skills vital to most employers, as well as the critical study of world literature, to strengthen one’s value of multiculturalism and creativity.
