English Majors, Minors, and Certificate

In the Marist English Department, we believe that the best way to prepare for the future is to have a firm grounding in literary and literacy traditions and a strong set of skills in reading, thinking, analysis, and writing. At Marist, you can work with a diverse group of dedicated, knowledgeable, and professionally-active faculty, along with a large group of engaged majors and minors, to study the past, present, and future of the English language.
