Why English at St. Thomas? Because you want to study what nurtures your soul and equips you for living.
English students are interested in many things and want a major that lets them explore all. English plays well with others: many students double-major or minor in other disciplines, and our faculty direct the interdisciplinary minors American Culture and Difference, which explores the diversity of American culture, and the Renaissance Program, which connects the liberal arts and business.
We have a vibrant department that offers many opportunities to gain professional experience, from consulting in the Center for Writing and editing the Summit Avenue Review literary magazine, to conducting research and writing projects with professors through UST’s Young Scholars and Collaborative Inquiry grants.
