English: the degree that opens doors

What do Emma Watson, Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, Steven Spielberg, Mitt Romney, and Sting have in common? All of them were English majors. Still nervous about the commitment? Hey, that’s alright! You want to make a responsible decision. The good news is you can make a responsible choice and pursue your love of English.

Program Overview

An English degree is one of the most versatile programs you can pursue. It’s great for students considering work in fields as diverse as entertainment, business, government, and technology. The skills you’ll learn include critical thinking, writing, and communication … these are MUST HAVES in nearly every job. At Concordia, our English degree can be a stand-alone liberal arts degree or a complimentary major for those pursuing a degree in  Secondary Education. Both tracks allow you to explore language and literature within a Christian context.

What to Expect

Does reading and writing sound easy? Get ready to be challenged. Our courses center around comprehending, expressing, and analyzing ideas (both others and your own), so the content is going to get deep. Get ready to read a wide range of authors, and brace yourself for regular creative writing opportunities. We also encourage our students to speak up and engage in high-level academic discourse with faculty and fellow students.
