(Bachelor of Arts Degree)
Students in the English degree program will acquire a foundation of analytical and creative skills that can be readily applied in any field. English majors are well read and articulate, write and speak effectively, approach problems thoughtfully and imaginatively, and are well prepared to meet the challenges of graduate school. Whether students utilize this path to go directly into the job market or to move onto a graduate program, English majors are taught the skills prized by employers and graduate schools.
In addition to the general core requirements for a bachelor's degree, students develop strong writing skills and a broad knowledge of the humanities through the completion of course work, literature, drama, and the fine arts. The works explored include both the traditional canon and works and writers of the diverse world in which we live. Students are exposed to a wide variety of ideas and concepts and are taught to develop their own views of the world as a result. Through the study of literature, English majors explore expressions of the human spirit spanning centuries and develop their skills in critical analysis, creative problem solving, research, writing, and speaking. Majoring in English is an ideal preparation for understanding the complex challenges of the contemporary world.
English Major Portfolio Requirement
All students majoring in English are required to construct an English Major Portfolio. These portfolios will differ according to the individual student's career and educational goals. The selections of work included will be made by the students and do not have to be limited to English papers. The papers, and other work as appropriate, should demonstrate clearly the skills mastered through the student's academic endeavors at Southern Vermont College. English faculty will advise and guide students through the process of portfolio construction with an eye on the student's educational and career goals.
