ENGLISH

Overview

English might well be among the most versatile majors, offering a wide range of courses that help students develop as writers, thinkers, and communicators.

The English major at Dordt College allows students to pursue their interests in creative writing, literature, or teaching. Some students even build their own independent studies course. A degree in English is also a great option for further study in law school, seminary, or any number of graduate programs.

Dordt's English professors are practicing writers who write and publish stories, poems, professional articles, essays, and op-ed pieces. Several have published books, some of which have included work by talented Dordt students. Because of small class sizes, students get to know professors and professors get to know their students. Many students are able to accompany professors on trips and even help with collaborative writing projects.
