English and Philosophy
Our department offers small classes and award-winning faculty. English students focus on literature, professional writing, or creative writing, while Philosophy majors take traditional or pre-law tracks. Our M.A., TESOL certificate, and Ph.D. in English and the Teaching of English prepare graduate students for careers in higher education.
