English majors at The College of Saint Rose immerse themselves in literature, creative writing, theater, film, and digital media, and go on to careers in a wide range of fields.

Effective communication and critical thinking are foundations for any professional career, and our English majors develop these abilities in courses across the history of English studies—from Renaissance drama to the Harlem Renaissance, from medieval epic to twenty-first century literature. Students find their voices in a variety of small classes taught by accomplished faculty, among them award-winning poets, scholars, and novelists. Our professors are dedicated teachers who actively involve students in their research and writing projects. Saint Rose English majors also gain a competitive edge in the job market through semester-long internships in various media outlets and nonprofits.
