English and Professional Writing

Bachelor of Arts (BA)

Work Experience

Develop your critical reading, writing and analytical thinking skills while you earn your degree in a complementary course of study between the English and Professional Writing fields.


Program Information

The specialized nature of this program lies in the blending of English and Professional Writing into a single degree program that highlights and enhances the relationship between the two fields of study. This degree option provides students with a course of study that is more coherent and practical than an English and Professional Writing double major or major/minor, degrees in which the two fields are treated as separate rather than complementary areas of study. Students will gain the skills today’s employers demand.
