Why study English?

English courses and the English major improve critical thinking and teach thoughtful and effective reading and writing, skills that are an excellent foundation for civic and business life. English courses also open unfamiliar worlds and exciting new ways of thinking. Often quite challenging and certainly never dull, English is a subject built on experiential learning, through discussion, debate, and stimulating readings and research assignments.
