Course Information

Program Overview
Assumption’s English major with a concentration in literature allows you to study works of a wide variety of periods, genres, and formats including film, audio, and websites. Join the ongoing conversation with these works, as well as part of the creation of new critical and imaginative texts of all kinds - written, visual and electronic. The ability to read, write, think, and speak effectively will serve you well in the classroom and in your career.

Don’t just study literature, experience it:

  • Perform in College-sponsored theatrical productions.
  • Explore cultural venues with professors and students such as theater or museums.
  • Travel through Ireland or England over spring break with other English majors and enjoy having your professors as “tour guides.”
  • Publish your work in Thoreau's Rooster, a journal of undergraduate creative non-fiction, or Muse, a journal of undergraduate fiction, poetry and art.
  • Write for the campus newspaper, Le Provocateur
  • Write and edit for broadcast at state-of-of the-art media facilities such as WCUW, a local radio station, or ACTV, Assumption College's own television station.
  • Participate in Sigma Tau Delta, the International English Honor Society.
