The new English B.A. will include a Literary and Cultural Analysis Track as well as a Professional Writing Track. We have observed growing interest in professional writing courses, and more incoming students want to prepare for careers while earning their B.A. in English. To meet this demand, our new job-focused B.A. English/Professional Writing Track concentrates on writing for professional contexts, including business writing, job searches and applications, interviewing skills, effective document design, copyediting, and authoring reports, grants, correspondence, websites, and social media. We've also added two new courses: ENG 3400: The Editorial Process and ENG 3404: Writing for the Web. We will help prepare you for the world of work!
