The work offered in English deals with several aspects of liberal education: the linguistic and literary history of Western culture; selected studies in non-Western literature in translation; human values; the relationships between cultures in the Southwest; and written and oral communication, both utilitarian and creative.
Students with other majors find courses in English valuable for their general educational development. In addition, the English Department offers supporting courses for the Native American and Indigenous Studies major, the Gender and Women’s Studies major, the Environmental Studies major, the Liberal Studies major, and other programs in intercultural studies.
English advisors can help students plan courses of study preparing them for graduate or professional school; careers in business, industry, or government; careers in communications, theatre, or teaching.
Minors in English , Journalism & Multimedia Studies , and Writing are available for students majoring in other disciplines.
