Bachelor of Arts English Studies (2 + 2)
A Bachelor of Arts with a major in English studies prepares students to be critical and creative readers, thinkers, and writers. The major will develop students’ ability to acquire, analyze, evaluate and communicate knowledge in multiple mediums. Students develop these powers of argument and analysis by working with diverse texts and examining the impact of gender, sexuality, race, ethnicity, nationality, class and ability on the production and reception of texts. Graduates will possess the analytical and communication skills critical to long-term professional success in many career fields and contributing to their communities as responsible, informed citizens. The BA in English studies will reflect the rich and varied nature of the discipline, allowing students to draw on courses in literature, creative writing, professional writing and rhetoric, cultural studies, and linguistics.

How do I know if I am in the University Partnership?
