What You’ll Learn
The study of English expands your imagination and builds verbal and written communication skills. Explore literature from Shakespeare to Science Fiction, Toni Morrison to Ovid. Learn how to analyze the written word. Deploy the English language with increasing precision and power in expository and creative formats. The path you choose can lead to an advanced degree or career. Many graduates become teachers, lawyers, social workers, business leaders, professional writers or editors.
What better way to learn than from the masters themselves? Leading contemporary writers visit campus for our critically acclaimed Writers Forum.
“With a fantastic faculty of professors (especially Dr. Elizabeth Whittingham), Brockport’s English department quickly turned my writing from non sequitur rambling into concise and poignant arguments. Brockport excels at plugging you into applicable fields of study and work to make your education work for you.” Kent Lester ’13
