BHSU English Program

As an English major or minor, you will learn to think critically and write well. You will study great works of literature, ranging from ancient poetry to twenty-first century fiction, and you will learn to express your ideas in clear, precise language.


Many BHSU English majors become highly-successful high school and middle school teachers. Others go into writing, editing, publishing, advertising, public relations, or journalism. Still others continue their education in English graduate programs, law school, and other professional programs.


We encourage all BHSU students to become involved in readings and lectures sponsored by the English program. We also invite submissions to the Bellman Awards for outstanding undergraduate writing, and to our creative publication, The Green Bowl Review, which is sponsored by the English Club.
