We offer three majors that allow you to focus on your interests while completing a core English curriculum.

Classes are small and highly engaged, and our close-knit students hold regular social events and volunteer activities in several student organizations.
As an English student at Virginia Tech, you'll leave college with more than a prescribed survey of lecture courses. You'll leave with the confidence to think critically and adapt, giving you the skills to succeed in whatever industry you choose.
