The writer C.S. Lewis once said, “We read to know we are not alone.”

As an English major, you will have opportunities to engage both the past and the present, as you walk alongside the men and women in history or fiction you would never have the opportunity to meaningfully know outside the world of books. 

Under the careful guidance of Christian professors, you will discover that good writing establishes a meeting point between the writer and the reader that, at its best, offers them glimpses of what it means to be human in a particular place and a particular moment in time.

In acknowledging the relationship between the words you read and the world you inhabit, you will also hone your writing and communication skills, developing a style and voice you will utilize both inside and outside the world of the classroom.

The small professor-to-student ratio provides an intimate environment in which you will engage in analytical conversations and opportunities to explore and question the world.

Additionally, you will have the opportunity to receive training in academic, creative, and technical writing, broadening the reach of your communication skills and solidifying your role as a thoughtful communicator in your future communities and job markets.
