Course Information

Literature and writing fundamentally shape who we are and how we see the world. As an English major you will explore what makes us human and experience the breadth of and depth of a single word. You will develop the skills of good writing and speaking.

Why Choose English?

The English major explores English language, literature and writing — and the criticism and theory of each — through a range of liberal arts and humanities courses. It provides portable skills that you can take with you no matter what profession you choose.

The English major at Manhattan College balances English and American literary traditions with a commitment to contemporary fields, including:

  • African American and ethnic studies
  • Postcolonial studies
  • Gender, sexuality and feminist studies
  • Film studies
  • Composition and creative writing

You will personalize your education by choosing from a wide variety of electives.

What Will You Learn?

The English major is much more than reading and writing. It incorporates history, sociology, religion, philosophy, science and psychology — all of the things that make human civilization, well, human. As an English major you will develop an understanding of literary texts and the issues that shaped them while you learn how to:

  • Communicate clearly in an appropriate tone
  • Develop logical, eloquent arguments
  • Observe and analyze complex information
  • Set schedules and work under deadlines
  • Think creatively and make meaningful connections across academic disciplines and to the world around you

You may choose English as a concentration within the School of Education & Health in the teacher of English (grades 7-12) program.
