Studying English and Writing at Methodist University

Methodist University offers a major and a minor in English and Writing and teacher certification in English (see requirements for more information).

They develop reading skills, analytical skills, and writing skills and knowledge about major writers of English, American, and world literature. Many employers seek to hire individuals with the breadth and depth of knowledge and the communication skills developed by most English and Writing majors. A number of Methodist graduates in recent years have gone on to prestigious law schools and graduate schools.
