Degree: Bachelor of the Arts

As an English major at Union, you will study how great authors, from Melville to Morrison, have used literature to confront and engage with timeless questions about love, justice, truth and evil.

In small classes that encourage and illuminate the exchange of multiple perspectives, you will be exposed to historical, cultural, gender and author studies across continents and traditions. Guided by our esteemed faculty, you will learn to read thoughtfully, think analytically, and write and communicate with clarity. Through intensive reading, writing, research projects, oral presentations and discussions with your peers and professors, you will gain a nuanced understanding of the range and complexity of human behavior and endeavors.
