English is one of the most versatile majors offered at Augusta University. Our students learn to become discriminating readers, independent thinkers, and skillful writers. About one-fourth of our majors plan to become high school English teachers; others will become editors, lawyers, doctors, entrepreneurs, or writers for magazines and newspapers. With concentrations in Literature, Professional Writing and Rhetoric, Creative Writing, or Secondary Teacher Certification, the diversity of courses we offer will challenge and surprise you. So will the breadth of our faculty's expertise, which encompasses Chinese poetry, science fiction, women's writing, Southern literature, post-modern literature, African literature, Irish literature, medieval literature, and more. Our students also have ample opportunities to participate in study abroad, undergraduate research, and internships.
