Critical skills and outstanding career preparation
The English Department offers courses in literature, theater and film that enable students to write, speak and think critically.
A degree is excellent preparation for many professions and occupations, including law, medicine, teaching, communications, business, government and military service. Many of our English students pursue post-graduate study. Norwich also offers an English minor that will enhance any course of study.
Something for everyone
A broad range of electives is open to every student, and provides period and thematic emphases across the literary canon. Specialty classes, from Military Literature to Third World Literature, broaden perspectives and allow students to study what interests them.
A writing laboratory and computer clusters enable technology-assisted writing instruction.
English majors may choose to take education courses and a semester of student teaching to qualify as a teacher in Vermont. Students should begin planning during freshman year to fit licensure requirements into their major.
