Request Information Button

The English major introduces students to a broad range of literature written in English from around the globe through a flexible and challenging curriculum that interweaves the skills of the professional writer and the literary critic. Students pursue their interests as writers and readers by choosing courses from a wide range of literary periods, and a full range of craft, editing, publishing, and rhetoric courses. Experiential and service-learning is encouraged through year-long honors thesis projects, semester-long internships, and many co-curricular opportunities in publishing and writing. Our literature and writing courses encourage and support student-driven collaborative learning, intellectual risk-taking, and the pursuit of challenging projects, thus exemplifying Regis’ mission to educate life-long learners who make a difference.
