English studies provide opportunities for students to learn more about themselves and their cultural environment by investigating literature and language of the past and present, and by improving ways in which they write in every part of their educational experience. From courses in Literature, Writing, Composition, and Film and Media Studies, students can take one of four majors, two minors, and two certificate programs. They may also pursue an Africana Studies–English Literature joint major.
