We interact with the global community in a thousand different ways every day. We connect with friends near and far via computer and phone. We view updates on elections and currency crises, we track the spread of diseases and civil unrest, and we even follow the latest in music and dance from blogs and videos posted by people around the world. We do this using devices designed by international teams and built with materials and components from dozens of countries. We are part of a truly globalized planet.

The sheer volume and the speed of trans-border movement of people, products and data mean that no country or individual exists as an island isolated from international forces. Our interdependence is a fact of life. The challenges of the 21st century are great: from controlling weapons of mass destruction to minimizing the impacts of climate change, from managing borderless trade and investment to tackling entrenched poverty and food insecurity, modern issues require international cooperation and collective solutions....

The University of Central Missouri's B.A. Program in English offers courses on a wide array of literature from different time periods, nations, and perspectives. UCM English majors study topics ranging from medieval romances to modern dystopias; from Jane Austen’s England to Langston Hughes’ Harlem; from Hamlet to Huckleberry Finn.

Our majors also do intensive work in writing and research that will serve them well in a twenty-first-century economy where these skills are much in demand. It is a major rooted in the challenges and pleasures of reading and thinking.
