The English major at Augustana combines breadth of curriculum with the in-depth study possible in a program emphasizing seminars and writing workshops. Students may choose a literature or a writing track, depending upon their future career goals and interests. Philosophically committed to helping students explore a wide diversity of writers and writing practices, the program exposes its majors to traditional masters of British and American literature along with the emerging voices of women and people of color, as well as literatures from India, China, Japan, Russia, Ireland, and the Middle East.
