Do you like to read, write, argue, analyze or persuade? English is a practical study that develops good communication, analytic, and persuasive skills needed for professions like public relations, politics, technical writing, marketing, and journalism. It’s an excellent major for those wanting to attend law school, and English teachers are in high demand.

Faulkner’s English department combines reflective reading of compelling literature with writing and speech—all taught from a Christian perspective. Small classes and attentive professors provide lively discussion and one-on-one study. The result is students who have a deep understanding of the human experience and who are literate, responsible citizens. Our students possess the necessary skills for the next level of education and a variety of promising careers.
