Why Study English Here?
Our students understand that literatures and languages shape people's perceptions, influence culture, and have revolutionary impact. In our program, you'll develop a strong foundation in liberal arts as you build core skills in critical reading, writing, research, and analysis.
We offer three majors that allow you to focus on your interests while completing a core English curriculum. Our talented faculty members specialize in a broad range of topics and frequently mentor students on independent projects. 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.
Beyond the Classroom
Our programs offer lots of opportunities for you to enrich your education, both inside and outside of class.
