The BA in English offers students at CCU the opportunity to earn a liberal arts degree that focuses on literature and writing and teaches students to analyze both text and context. The study of literature covers both genre-based and specialized courses. Writing classes deal with strengthening basic skills as well as developing creative abilities. Other aspects of the field, such as drama, film, and literary theory are also included. In addition, the BA in English can be combined with a minor in Communication Arts that offers additional range in areas of journalism and includes an internship. Those who complete the program are equipped to work in editing, especially with a Christian publishing company, as well as to work in areas connected to public relations and marketing. The BA in English is also a good foundational degree for advanced study in many areas, including literature, rhetoric, philosophy, and law.
