The English Department provides a wide variety of courses of value and interest
to the University community as a whole as well as to those who wish to pursue
a major or minor in English language and literature. To help the student meet
his general education requirements, the department offers both a composition
program designed to improve his language and writing skills and several sopho-
more-level literature courses designed to provide vital experiences within the
humanistic tradition.

The English major or minor is a program designed to provide a significant
encounter with the humanizing forces of language and literature. As an impor-
tant focus in the tradition of the liberal arts, the study of English should
produce a graduate more conscious of himself, his nature, his society, his
values, and his tradition.

The Bachelor of Arts degree in English also prepares the student to pursue
numerous career possibilities. Many English majors and minors go into teaching
in the public schools, and others go on to graduate school to prepare for college
and university teaching. However, an ever-increasing number of alternative
paths are opening up to the English major or minor. Schools of law and graduate
schools of business administration frequently encourage their potential candi-
dates for admission to pursue the liberal arts background and the analytical
and writing abilities that an English major or minor develops. Many business
firms and government agencies seek candidates for their individual training
