Program Overview

Study language, literature, and expression in Concordia’s Bachelor of Arts in English degree program.

Concordia’s English degree program allows you to choose from two offerings: a liberal arts degree or a complementary major for those seeking a degree in secondary education. Both options allow you to explore the language, literature, and expression of the Western canon. 

In order to demonstrate your understanding of texts and ideas, you will be expected to write analytically and creatively. Professors will motivate you to think critically about texts, consider them within a Christian context, and apply its lessons to your day to day life.

What to Expect

English degree students will learn and engage in critical thinking, reading comprehension, writing, and communication skills (both written and verbal), and participate in class discussions.

Courses focus on comprehending, expressing, and analyzing ideas (both others’ and your own).

You will read a wide range of authors and engage in high-level academic discussions with faculty and classmates, and learn how to express your thoughts.
