Literature immerses you into worlds created by great imaginations. Studying the written word, and the techniques and theories behind it, will sharpen your abilities in analysis and creative writing. Earning the bachelor's degree in English gives you the skills to read and write about complex ideas, characters, and plot lines.
What you'll study
British, American, and world literatures provide a strong foundation for the English major. Choose to explore Shakespeare, the Beatniks, contemporary memoir, or fantasy/science fiction. Read closely through the lenses of popular culture, literary criticism, and theory. Discuss how magic happens on the page when a writer effectively expresses insight, technique, and creativity.
How you'll learn more
Refine your papers through the learning process of drafting, writing, and revising. Great professors inspire you, even as the great authors of the world become your teachers too. Meet current authors at campus events. Write or edit for NSU's student literary arts magazine or newspaper, or start your own poetry slam on campus.
Where it can take you
Communication and clear writing are essential tools to stand out in a world of digital clutter. Realize your potential in advertising, website production, or education. Continue to graduate studies in literature, law, and almost any field that demands strong communication skills. Be ready to write.
