Listen here to English faculty member Gianna Russo reading from her original work.
The written word stirs the
intellect, the imagination and the soul, reflecting our lives, and
evoking our hopes and dreams. The study of English appeals to our
romantic sensibilities, and is also a professional pursuit with
many career opportunities—the world needs articulate communicators,
and an English major knows how to meet that demand.
Study writing and literature—from mythology to the modern
drama—alongside faculty with years of experience as editors,
playwrights and grant writers. Walk in the footsteps of Shakespeare
and Jane Austen on a faculty-led trip to London. Cultivate your
voice amongst other aspiring authors and professional authors at
the Sandhill Writers Retreat. Try your hand at publishing with
Saint Leo’s literary magazine, Sandhill Review, and
student newspaper The Lions' Pride.
B.A. English concentrations are available in Advanced Literary
Study, Professional Writing
and Dramaturgy. If you aim to teach
English at the secondary level, combine your English degree
with an Education minor in place of a concentration.
Graduates succeed in a variety of careers in advertising, public
relations, editing, publishing and teaching. Some also pursue
graduate study in English, library science and law.
