Being an English major at Freed-Hardeman is about scholarship and research, but it is also about community. You will have the chance to work alongside like-minded students and a passionate faculty of scholars who are still students themselves. The English program at FHU offers a range of literature courses in the great writers from the British and American literary traditions, as well as topical seminars on areas of special interest to our faculty and students, including courses in women writers, Arthurian literature, and African-American literature. Whatever course you choose to take, you're sure to study under professors who love what they do, who enjoy learning with you, and who approach their craft from a Christian perspective.
Many of our English majors plan to teach at the secondary level. Others pursue a graduate degree in English or enter law school or another professional degree program, such as Information (Library) Science. In fact, our recent graduates have been accepted to graduate and professional degree programs at such respected institutions as Purdue, Vanderbilt, the University of Alabama, the University of Arkansas, and the University of Tennessee, among others. Still other graduates are now working in writing and editing, banking and finance, and the ministry. An English major can thus provide good preparation for any field that requires critical thinking and writing skills, the interpretation of texts, and making oral presentations.
For more information regarding the English Program, please contact Dr. John McLaughlin at email@example.com.
To make your path to graduation a little easier, a 4-year plan for students planning to major in English has been created:
