English majors at Mars Hill University follow a rigorous course of study in literature and writing, both creative and analytical, leading to the Bachelor of Arts degree. Majors who complete additional coursework can get secondary school licensure. Many students in other disciplines choose to minor in English, particularly our burgeoning creative writing minor and concentration. English is often called the “pre-professional liberal arts degree,” as the in-depth study of language and literature, critical reading and writing, provides excellent preparation for the demands of an increasingly communication-heavy society. English majors are uniquely equipped to work in a wide variety of fields with success. Recent English majors have gone on to successful careers in teaching, law, medicine, school administration, marketing, and journalism.
