Small classes allow one on one time with professors, in depth class discussions, and the ability for students to challenge themselves. The English Department professors are dedicated to helping students develop their craft in one of four bachelor degree areas: creative writing, literature, professional writing, and teaching certification. As an English major, you will achieve 40 hours of credited course work through a combination of core courses and completion of one concentration, listed above.
Graduating with a degree in English, or with a minor, provides experience that prepares any student for the challenges of the 21st century. English majors, and minors, are prepared to tackle prestigious graduate school programs or perfect their resumes to find the career they love.
Active on campus, English students partake in impressive organizations such as the Student Government Association and the President’s Leadership Circle. They represent FSU at national conferences, in local and regional publications, and on campus, where they provide leadership.
