English Degree Program with an English Language and Literature Discipline

Want to study in an inspired setting? Check out Vanderbilt University.

On the 333-acre campus, filled with shrubs and trees, 6,883 students study at this top research institute. The Greek life brings together about 40% of the students, and there are more than 500 clubs and organizations to keep others busy. All undergraduates are required to live on campus, with freshmen living together in housing called “The Commons,” which boasts six LEED certified green dorms. The Vanderbilt English major with a discipline in English language and literature major allows students to personalize their studies while still gaining a wide range of knowledge and skills traditional to the major. Courses cover the history of British and American literature, Anglophone literature from other countries, literary theory, and expository and creative writing. The program hosts an annual visiting writers’ series and sponsors public lectures, readings, and other events where majors can hear and meet celebrated poets, novelists, and critics. At Vanderbilt, you also have plenty of opportunities to get involved on editorial boards, including the Vanderbilt Hustler and the Vanderbilt Review. Plus, you’ll have one of the nation’s top library systems in your reach — the Jean and Alexander Heard Library. This is home to more than 8 million items, 4.5 million volumes, 1 million electronic books, and 94,000 e-journals and databases. The oldest manuscript in the collection dates from the 1300s.
