Critical reading, writing, thinking—these are the skills for success in any field.As an English major, you'll sharpen your observational and analytic acuity and improve your ability to shape words to communicate more effectively, opening up a diverse range of career options.
When you pursue a B.A. in English, you will take a core set of foundational courses that will teach you to analyze and evaluate works of American, English, and other world literature in their cultural and historical perspectives. You'll also take four courses specific to your concentration. Choose to focus on rhetoric and writing or dive deeper into literary theory and history. Our English majors excel in many fields: law, business, journalism, public relations, acting, education, marketing, and professional writing.
Expert FacultyOur English faculty are scholars and creative writers whose work has appeared in Iowa Review, Boston Review, Florida Historical Quarterly, and Florida Studies.
Get InvolvedCantilevers, the College's literary magazine, and events such as World Poetry Day, provide opportunities for you to share your work and learn to collaborate with others.
Writers SeriesOur Visiting Writers Series brings nationally known writers, poets, and scholars to Florida Southern, including National Book Award finalists and writers for The Onion.
Ready For The WorkplaceArmed with keen observational and analytical skills, you'll find yourself ready to pursue opportunities in advertising, business and grant writing, journalism and editing, even consulting.
