    As an English major, you’ll develop the communication and critical thinking skills that employers want and the world needs. You'll develop a solid foundation in language studies through the program's focus on literary works and their interpretation.

    You'll also have opportunities to practice what you’re learning. You might be the next member of Inscape's editorial board, act in an original play through our Drama Workshop, present your creative writing in the Ursuline Writers' Showcase, earn your induction into our Epsilon Psi chapter of the national English honor society, Sigma Tau Delta, or read aloud some of your favorite literature during Banned Books Week.

    Inscape, Ursuline's award-winning fine arts annual, is edited and designed by students to showcase their own and other students' powerful creative writing and visual art. It's a tradition dating back to 1945! The Associated Collegiate Press awarded Inscape the prestigious First Class award in 2014.

Some choose graduate study leading to college and university teaching or, in conjunction with an education major, for high school teaching.
