Students seeking lives and careers of accomplishment, distinction, and personal satisfaction value the academic rigor as well as the vital skills training in writing and research that studying English at BPC provides.  Courses in the English department, which include courses in academic and creative writing and in American and British literatures, give students the opportunity to explore both literature and culture in an atmosphere of inquiry, enthusiasm, and creativity.

Reading, critical evaluation, and written expression establish the fundamentals of a liberal arts education.  As students benefit from the pleasures of reading great literature and of exploring the history of ideas through their own writing, they develop the analytical and evaluative skills that distinguish an education from mere job training.  Employers desire these skills because they realize the importance of critical thinking and effective communication in today's competitive society.

What kinds of careers do English majors prusue?  Here are just a few:

     * teaching

     * literary scholarship

     * theory

     * philosophy

     * law

     * film

     * journalism and telecommunications

     * public relations

     * marketing
