The Bachelor of Arts degree in English offers students the opportunity to develop a strong foundation in writing and rhetoric, literary history and theory, and cultural analysis. English studies offers our students skills as critics and writers that will allow them to pursue advanced graduate work, if they choose, and to succeed in a variety of professions and occupations. These skills include analysis, synthesis, communication, and critical perspective. We hope to have English majors leave our program as engaged global citizens, prepared for active intellectual and public life in the twenty-first century. Two options for English majors are available at WSU Vancouver, the literary studies option and the teaching without certificate option. The latter option is recommended for students completing English area requirements for secondary teacher certification. At WSU Vancouver, English majors can further enhance their major studies with course work from complementary programs in professional writing, digital technology and culture, and women's studies.
