Schreiner University offers courses leading to the Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in English. The English program supports the tenets of liberal arts education expressed in the philosophy of the University. English courses prepare students for careers in foreign and public service, law, the ministry, communications, teaching, and research. Both the major and minor prepare students for related graduate studies. In lower division courses, students focus on reading, writing, research, and other language competencies. Sophomore level literature courses introduce students to a wide range of literature from ancient to modern periods. In upper division surveys and seminars, students examine national literatures, periods, and genres in depth. Students refine their research and writing skills as they prepare to construct and present a senior project.
