Bachelor of Arts in English

The English major is designed to provide a quality undergraduate program in English in literature, composition, and language usage. NSU's Department of Languages and Literature offers both a generalist concentration that prepares the student for entry into the professional world or graduate study on the master's level and a unique Teaching English as a Second Language (TESOL) concentration focused on teaching and language proficiency.


The department is committed to focusing on the cultivation of scholarship, critical thinking, writing competence, and promotion of a devotion to literature and the use of written language in all of its programs and lifelong learning.
The degree provides a foundation to produce educated graduates with strong liberal arts experience who can become valuable citizens in their communities and serve as a resource in their communities.
