B.A. in English

The English major at the Farquhar College of Arts and Sciences is designed to provide students with a background in British, American, and world literatures, literary criticism and theory, popular culture, and rhetoric and composition.

As English majors, students will be able to select from a range of courses, from Caribbean Literature to Shakespeare—and more. Some of the unique English courses that have been offered in the program include: Literature and Medicine, Detective Fiction, and King Arthur.

The English major is offered during the day and evening on NSU's main campus.

Consider Selecting a Minor

Pursuing a minor can deepen your knowledge in a discipline related to your major or enable you to explore a field outside your major area of study and diversify your skills. Speak with a faculty member in your program to determine which minor(s) can support your academic, professional, and personal goals.
