Upper Iowa University

It is difficult to imagine a professional career that does not require top-notch communication skills in both writing and speaking. An English major ensures these skills and more; it instills in the learner a sense of oneself and of where and how one connects to the evolving culture that surrounds us all. The study of English is about history and direction of language itself, and the uses to which language may be put in a variety of social and career contexts. An English major enhances critical thinking capabilities and sharpens the ability to cut through the bunkum clogging up so much of the information we are bombarded with daily. It joins one to the best that has been thought and written through time. At Upper Iowa a student has a choice between the traditional English major, with its emphasis on literature and culture, and a creative writing track which does more to explore the student’s own potential for contribution to poetry, fiction and criticism in the 21st century. The major is sanctioned by the Association of Writers and Writing Programs. - See more at: http://www.uiu.edu/academics/undergraduate/english.html#sthash.c2BgdwhQ.dpuf
