English Program Requirements

English is every student’s essential instrument of understanding and expression. Crandall University’s B.A. in English begins with a strong two-year survey of major authors’ works, and as students advance, they are able to choose from a wide range of courses, including period courses; survey courses in Canadian literature, American literature, and contemporary literary criticism; and specialized courses on classic authors such as Chaucer, Shakespeare, Austen, and Eliot. Crandall’s English program also offers unique upper level courses that explore the ways in which a Christian worldview informs and enriches the work of twentieth-century authors such as C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien. As graduates, students will have laid the foundation for many careers in which language, advanced reading, and communication are especially important, including journalism, law, public relations, counseling, Christian ministries, teaching English, creative writing, and graduate studies in English literature.
