The English program at ASU’s West campus uses literary works to examine the issues of class, gender, race, and ethnicity in America and beyond. Students will not only enhance their writing skills, but will gain a stronger ability to think critically and speak clearly, preparing them for careers in teaching, law, business, marketing, and politics, among others.
Students in the BA in English learn how to write clearly and effectively and to think critically and construct well-supported arguments.
The program stresses the formal aesthetic qualities of texts and the issues of class, gender, race and ethnicity relating to literary representation. Students gain a familiarity with standard literary-critical terminology and an awareness of various theoretical approaches to literary study. Students also become aware of uses of the English language in the U.S. and around the world.
The program provides students with a balanced overview of major literature in the English language and an awareness of the role of literary discourse in broader social and historical contexts.
