The core English curriculum prepares students for positions that require reading, writing, critical and creative thinking abilities, as well as for graduate study in a variety of professional fields.
The skills fostered by our English major transfer to a wide variety of professional career paths, spanning the fields of public relations, media, medicine, law, technology, education, social services, and business.
Students may participate in student-run publications including The Insight, Daemen’s campus newspaper, and its literary magazine, The Writer’s Block.
Small Class Sizes
Small class sizes (13:1 student/faculty ratio) encourage interaction with faculty members dedicated to teaching through personal attention to each student.
Studying English offers you the opportunity to engage with human culture by approaching the world as a text we encounter every day—in books, in media, in film, and online—and responding to it thoughtfully, analytically, and creatively.
