Saint Rose English majors immerse themselves in literature, creative writing, drama, film, and new media, then go on to enjoy successful careers in a vast range of occupations.

Coursework encompasses every aspect of English. Majors explore literature from antiquity to the present day, as well as creative writing, dramatic performance, and film. Internships have taken place at The Times Union, Capital Repertory Theatre, the Sanctuary for Independent Media, and the New York State Alliance for Arts Education, among many other places. Semesters in London are available via agreement with Regent’s College. Graduate programs include a focus on research and writing in the MA in English, serious development of craft in the MFA in Creative Writing, and the opportunity to earn initial teaching certification in grades 7 through 12 via the master’s program in Adolescence Education/English.
