Interested in an English Major?

The English major at Iowa State allows you the flexibility of focusing on your own areas of interest.  The department offers English Education (the 2010 national teacher of the year graduated from our program), but there are many other options. You can combine courses in creative writing, rhetoric, literature and even Linguistics (which also has its own major) to make a degree program that best suits your interests. For example, you could take a group of classes related to film and screen writing or classes dealing with environmental literature and writing.

If you like the idea of combining writing and science/technology or web design, our major in Technical Communication may be for you.

Those interested in civic discourse and oral communication can major in Speech Communication. Students in secondary education can also earn an ESL endorsement through classes in the English Department.
