Welcome to the English Major at Baylor University! We are excited about the prospect of working with you in the study of literature and language!

A major or a minor in English will not only teach you the art of careful reading and expose you to great works of literary art, it will also prepare you for the clear communication, critical thinking, and creative innovation demanded by many careers.

English students at Baylor choose from a variety of stimulating course options, including taking classes abroad through the Baylor in Oxford program. Our faculty excels both in scholarship and in engagement with students. Please take time to browse our faculty's specialties and accomplishments and explore the many ways to get involved in the English Department through clubs, lectures, and unique events such as the Beall Poetry Festival.
