The English major at Springfield College is designed to increase students’ abilities in oral and written expression, to develop their proficiency in reading and analyzing literature, to stimulate their appreciation, awareness, and understanding of the fundamental human problems and situations revealed in great literature, and to further develop their skills and techniques in the communicative arts.
Springfield College English majors may choose a concentration in either creative writing or professional writing. They also often minor or double-major in a related field, and contribute to one of our campus publications, like the Alden Street Review, our literary journal; The Springfield Student, our weekly newspaper; or The Pride Sports Journal, our athletics magazine. English majors may also opt to seek licensure as a teacher of English at the secondary level or licensure as an elementary teacher.
As a graduate from the English major, you’ll have dozens of careers at your fingertips, including in the fields of education, journalism, research, government, publishing, advertising, technical or creative writing, and editing. Law schools, graduate programs, and nonprofit organizations especially value English majors for their highly-developed skills in critical thinking, writing, researching, and communication.
