UMA’s Bachelor of Arts in English is a liberal arts program designed to deepen your understanding and appreciation of literature. In small classes, you will enjoy vibrant discussion, personal attention, and close working relationships with the English faculty, a community of scholars and writers dedicated to teaching. Special areas of study include British and American literature and culture, women’s studies, postcolonial and francophone studies, Shakespeare, and creative and technical writing. In the process of reading, writing about, and discussing great works, you will develop the skills of analysis, collaboration, critical reasoning, and written and oral communication. These are skills many employers now prefer to specific career preparation, especially with the growing global market and the rise of the internet. The skills you will gain provide an outstanding foundation for graduate study or professional careers in teaching, journalism, publishing, and professional writing, as well as administration, business, government, and social services.
