English: Literary Studies

Want to understand yourself better? Learn about others by studying their writing. You'll come face-to-face with unresolved (and perhaps unrecognized) questions in your own life by reflecting on those of others.

Paying attention to language changes over several centuries, you'll also come to understand common themes and distinctive differences across time and the human experience. A literary studies degree is a rich foundation for pre-law, history, business, education or cultural studies.
