Program Description

English programs are not just about reading and writing poetry and stories or studying great works of literature. An English degree is a window into the world of confident communication. English majors learn how to read critically and analyze texts (written and otherwise), navigate the roads of rhetoric and propaganda, and persuade others toward ideas that might improve the world. This degree transfers to the bachelor’s program at UNM-Albuquerque.
