The English and Foreign Languages Department at Centenary College combines the best elements of a traditional English degree with non-traditional options.

A traditional English degree includes an intensive exploration of American and British literature, analysis of milestones in literary periods, and in-depth study of influential writers.

Non-traditional options include specialization in career-oriented and professional writing, courses for future teachers, and offerings in cross-cultural and multi-ethnic literature, literature by women writers, and literature influenced by technology.

English Majors completing their English degree in our unique learning environment are prepared for careers in education, business and marketing, corporate communications, free-lance and staff positions in creative and professional writing, law, writing for electronic media, and publishing.
