English and Cultural Studies Programs

When you major or minor in English or major in Social Justice and Cultural Studies, you will immerse yourself in words, whether in the form of great works of literature from the past or in the form of contemporary cultural texts. 

As you delve into your major or minor, you will read carefully and think critically, interpreting poems and stories and cultural artifacts of all kinds, including some sound and image. Through words and other media, you will share the embodied experience of all kinds of people in our diverse nation and world. And you will have the opportunity to express yourself in words of your own, whether you are writing academic papers or poems, stories, and personal essays.
