A Grace College English major is an invitation to join the lively and potentially life-changing conversation unfolding through centuries in the writing of diverse and gifted authors. Recognizing language as a gift from a creative God who has also endowed humans with creative potential, we seek to develop this potential and enhance our understanding of the power and pleasure of the written word. English majors enjoy small, discussion-oriented classes taught by talented faculty who are themselves practicing scholars, writers, and poets. Our program encourages students to develop a broad foundation through survey courses as well as to deepen their expertise through specialized electives on such topics as C.S. Lewis, the graphic novel, and young adult literature. English majors explore career interests through a senior capstone experience and internship.
Outside of the classroom, students can enjoy author visits and book signings, field trips to theatre performances, a creative writing workshop, and, if eligible, membership in Sigma Tau Delta, the national English honor society.

As soon as I had decided to become an English Major, I most greatly felt valued and accepted by both my peers and professors. Their support and confidence in me have allowed me to venture outside of my comfort zone and experience life in new and exciting ways. Whether you wish to become an English major, or simply wish to participate in our events, there is a spot for you here in the English program.Kyela Seals
