What is unique about this major at UWGB?

Breadth & Depth. Students majoring in English must have an interdisciplinary minor. Students often select Humanistic Studies and Communication and the Arts, but may choose Human Development, Social Change and Development, or other appropriate programs. These combinations provide additional dimensions to the English major.

Excellent Faculty. The English department does not use graduate students as teachers, and all faculty in English are fully qualified, with appropriate terminal degrees. All are committed and experienced teachers.

Beyond the Classroom. Although internships are not required for English majors, many are available in areas such as public relations, business communications, and television. They provide students with the opportunity to explore possible careers and prepare them for the workplace.
