The Department of English offers a major leading to the Bachelor of Arts degree through the College of Liberal Arts. Literature and literary studies are at the core of the humanities and at the center of debates concerning culture, politics, education, and language. The program of study in English not only enriches students’ appreciation of literature and engages them in cultural debate but helps develop crucial skills in analytical thinking and clear, persuasive expression both in speech and in writing. An English degree is an ideal gateway for careers that emphasize communication and critical thinking including law, business, journalism, public service, and education.

Full degree requirements are available in the Undergraduate Catalog, which is available through UM Online Services.
