Undergraduate Degree Program


Do you dream of writing the next great novel or non-fiction exposé that rockets to the top of The New York Times best-seller list?

Perhaps you love Shakespeare and great drama... poetry and playwriting... immersing yourself in the masterpieces of literature...

Or maybe you’re exploring a variety of professional pathways that rely on the ability to communicate clearly and well — which means just about every vocation and profession of the 21st century.

As you consider your future options, a major in English at Albertus Magnus College can provide you with the solid foundation you need to lead a productive and enriching life.

You’ll benefit from our personalized approach that helps you improve your written and oral communication as you gain a deeper knowledge and critical appreciation of literature in English. Working directly with our enthusiastic and accessible professors who teach your small classes, you’ll be inspired to develop a spirit of inquiry and a habit of reasoning that supports your discovery of a system of values.

Through the emphasis on writing across the curriculum at Albertus, you develop important skills in argument formation, character analysis, expository writing and how to do the research required in many other AMC courses.

With our balanced, historically comprehensive and rigorous curriculum, you are well prepared for graduate study, a fulfilling life and a rewarding career in fields as diverse as law, publishing, education, government/civil service, library science, business and journalism.

Choose from concentrations in Creative Writing and Dramatic Studies or add a minor in English.
