Why Study English?

Do you:

  • Appreciate cultural and artistic expression?
  • Want to become a more creative thinker?
  • Enjoy debate and dialogue about ideas?
  • Love spending time reading and writing?
  • Want a degree that will give you the skills for a wide variety of careers?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you should consider pursuing a degree in English literature or TESOL.

Andrews University’s English Department provides a long and varied list of classes each term to encourage you to satiate your curiosity about literature, literary history, culture and film. In courses from a Film Evaluation class to a Tanzania Study Tour, teachers provide opportunities for analysis, discussion, and enjoyment of many different forms of the spoken and written word.
