Whether reading, writing, or traveling the globe, English majors find meaning in the world around them. Here, UD English students in a 2018 study-abroad course visit the Louvre Museum in Paris, France.
The innovative approach of the English major encourages students to network with a variety of mentors and advisors to design a unique course of study and to develop a competitive portfolio. Our courses include a broad range of topics including business, publishing, fiction, editing, American literature, medical writing, poetry, travel writing, British literature, drama studies, magazine writing, World literature, science/tech writing, gender studies, screenwriting, environmental studies, grant-writing, blogging, vlogging, disability studies, African American literature, legal writing, podcasting, sports writing, creative non-fiction, and film studies. Students learn how to create, analyze, contextualize, and explain texts, from classic literature to the documents that drive the corporate world. They learn about the diverse cultural traditions that are fundamental to American history, and they acquire the knowledge and skills to thrive as global citizens.
The English major prepares students to adapt to an ever-evolving workplace where professional skills change rapidly. The ability to read and write effectively, to analyze and disseminate information, to gauge and act on the validity of rhetoric, to interpret complex narratives, and to shape new possibilities — these skills will always be in demand.
Of the 36 ENGL credits required for the major, 9 credits cover three categories — Literary History, Textual Analysis and Production, and Cultural Diversity — as well as a 3-credit capstone experience which could involve either an internship or research or experiential learning connecting with professionals in a wide variety of fields. The remaining 24 ENGL credits are tailored to meet the unique interests and needs of individual students.
Students must choose one course from each of the following three categories:
1. Literary History (one course required):
2. Textual Analysis and Production (one course required):
3. Cultural Diversity (one course required):
