Department of English


Many people decide to major or minor in English because of the flexibility and practicality of the degree--recent graduates of our program are now business executives, lawyers, university professors, teachers, reporters, public relations consultants, singers, songwriters, realtors, ministers, technical writers and consultants, TV and film producers, and freelance writers. But English majors also revel in reading and writing as acts of love and creativity, of imagination and the human need to communicate. It's education for living.

Majoring in English at Belmont provides you with:

  • Inspiration to grow as a scholar and person
  • Opportunities to develop as a writer in a variety of settings
  • Connections to your campus, your community, and the world beyond
