Consider an English degree
The Bachelor of Arts with a Major in English prepares thinkers, readers, and communicators for a variety of careers. The versatility of the degree makes it a good fit for law, scholarship, publishing, advertising, or making your way down your own creative path. Course emphases include British and American literature, women’s and gender studies, and professional writing. Regardless of the emphasis, in keeping with the development of agile, mobile, analytic skills, the program goal is to encourage intellectual engagement, thoughtfulness, and philosophic vision.

Experienced faculty
Our excellent faculty have national scholarly reputations. But we also roll up our sleeves and immerse ourselves in the work of the campus and the Minot community. We regularly host, for example, poetry readings, literary conferences, and even chili contests. Our students are active, too; members of Sigma Tau Delta and the English Club often present papers at the Sigma Tau Delta national conference and publish essays in the Society’s journal.  We are on the move here, and would love to have you with us.
