English BA

The major in English is useful in jobs where critical thinking, clear communication, and writing skills are a priority; additionally, it is a recognized gateway to professional graduate programs, such as law and medical school. Students who enjoy literature and are interested in growing as writers will find a major in English an enjoyable and marketable degree. Culminating in a senior project developed in close consultation with one or more faculty members, the major is designed to ensure broad familiarity with major periods and genres of American, British, and international literature, and is a way to study history and human cultures as well. A sense of community is strong among LCSC English majors who provide a number of services to the campus community, including staffing our campus Writing Center.

All English graduates are required to complete:

  1. An exit interview and oral examination with divisional faculty, and
  2. An oral presentation of senior project.
