English majors focus on analyzing and interpreting a variety of literature. Novels, short stories, essays, poetry and other works of creative writing are all a part of this field of study. The coursework includes a variety of studies including history, politics, arts and culture. Available courses include:

  • Modern British Literature
  • American Renaissance
  • Early English Literature
  • Creative Writing
  • American Literature through Whitman

The English department has several resources for students. One unique program is the Writing Center. The English Writing Center is staffed by English graduate students who edit and assist with undergraduate English students' work. This resource benefits both the graduate and undergraduate students as they continue to develop their skills.

Baylor University's undergraduate scholarly publication, The Pulse, promotes academic writing among undergraduate students. Students with exceptional writing and research are given the chance to have their work featured in the publication, whether for their classes or for their Honors or University Scholars theses. The Pulse also provides opportunities for students to gain experience in the publication process.

Students graduating with an English degree often continue their studies in graduate or law school. They most commonly find jobs in communications, public relations, public writing or teaching.
