Consider an English Major
Studying English is a way to hone your skills in analysis, writing, and digital environments, all while expanding your understanding of the rich complexity and diversity of the world. Edgewood’s English Department is a place where you will be welcomed into small classes exploring vital issues with faculty who love to teach and have deep expertise in their fields.
Employers prize the abilities of English majors, who succeed not only in capturing good jobs after graduation, but also in using their talents to build substantial careers. Right now Edgewood English graduates are working in marketing, journalism, education, library science, a wide range of non-profits, government, and publishing—and that is only a small sampling. Our majors and minors attend graduate school for Literature, Creative Writing, Journalism, Law, Library Science, Education, and are very successful in gaining admittance to other programs.
The choice to study English is a practical one, but also a meaningful decision to pursue the larger truths. Here, you will read novels instead of textbooks, learn how to use language to express yourself, encounter ways of seeing the world from times and places that are completely new, and, ultimately, walk away with an education you will use for the rest of your life.
ASPIRING WRITER SCHOLARSHIPS are available for qualified new students. If you like to write and are happy to take some English classes along the way, you probably qualify.
