The experience: Real-world writing, intensive analysis
In the Bachelor of Arts with a major in English, you get solid theoretical preparation and learn how to use it in hands-on situations.
In literature and creative writing courses, you will read intensely and discuss literature at a deep, analytical level. Those skills are applied across courses in poetry, fiction, drama, film, video games, and graphic novels to develop a portfolio of original work that will make you competitive for graduate school or provide you with a professional portfolio to find your dream job.
While taking coursework in English, you will practice what you learn in class and by working for Trine's literary journal, Inscriptions, by writing for the department, and by promoting departmental events like the Humanities Symposia. If you are interested in graduate study or teaching, you also can work in the university's Writing Center tutoring fellow students.
