Literature at Baylor

Literature and literary culture is the center of the humanities, and requires students to combine knowledge from across their educational and social background in order to investigate the various ideas and perspectives they encounter in British, American, and world literature written in English. Studying literature at Baylor will not only enhance your appreciation of literary art, it will engage you in ongoing cultural debates and prepare you for a wide variety of professional careers. The critical reading, analytical thinking, and clear communication developed as an English Literature major are skills valued by myriad future employers or graduate-level academic programs. Our majors and minors have gone on to succeed in various MA and PhD programs, law schools, and begun successful careers in business, journalism, education, and public service.
