Students in the English program complete core requirements in literature while developing their ability to analyze literary and cultural texts and contexts, and to write clear, persuasive, and graceful prose. These reading, thinking, and writing skills will enhance their capacity for persuasion, leadership, clarity, and interpersonal effectiveness in whatever career they pursue. Many occupations require an individual who can write and speak well, solve problems, learn new information quickly, and work well with others on a team, all of which are developed in this program, including careers in Business, Communications, Education, Media and in Government and Nonprofit Organizations. 

English is a MassTransfer A2B Mapped Program with some Massachusetts State Universities and Universities of Massachusetts. When choosing electives, complete an A2B Program Search at www.mass.edu/masstransfer to determine available transfer institutions and to ensure all credits will be transferred and applied to your degree.
