English is the medium of communication, business and entertainment for millions of people around the world.

From witty plays and elegant films to pungent protest songs and complex novels, it allows people to formulate and convey their particular vision of the world and their often urgent desire to celebrate or improve it. Students will examine examples of English at work in different circumstances, ranging from poetry to television and the Internet. The English Major is for students who intend to become secondary English teachers or for students who want to work at the intersection of English literature, film, and television.
