The USM English major is devoted to the study of language, literature, and culture. Focusing on the British and American literary traditions, the major exposes students to a range of literature in different historical eras. It also offers students the opportunity to explore other traditions such as Irish or Canadian literature, women’s writing, and African- American writing. In addition to literatures written in English, course offerings include world literatures in translation from the classical to contemporary eras.
