Learn. Lead. Succeed
Let’s set the record straight: there are great careers for English majors. The problem is that too few English majors learn the business side of their craft. Nichols students who major in English don’t have that problem.
Come work closely with professors with experience in reporting, freelance writing, political research, publishing, communications consulting, and more. Contribute your own creative pieces to WINDFALL, Nichols’ literary publication. Tutor and teach as you learn. Write your book as a school project.
Whether you want to teach English as a second language, go on to graduate school, or work in publishing or the nonprofit world, Nichols provides the literary and technical training to lead in your chosen field.
English majors must complete 120 credit hours (approximately 40 courses), including courses from the foundation curricula, focused electives and these required specialization courses:
Professor of English
Associate Professor of English
Visiting Assistant Professor of English
Associate Professor of English / Chair, English / Administrative Director of the Honors Scholar Program
