Bachelor of Arts in English
Language is a powerful tool. We use it everyday to communicate with each other, to express ourselves, to make sense of the world around us. Northwest University’s English program can help you harness the power of the written and spoken word to develop skills that you will use for the rest of your life, no matter what your career path. You’ll study literature, poetry, and drama from around the world, exploring different perspectives and worldviews while challenging your own.
“[The English faculty] were the first people to believe in me as a writer. They were the first people to believe in this girl from Guam who wanted to explore ideas but felt insecure about her place on this big American continent. They were the place that I felt the most at home. All of my stories and poems that have been published were started in an English class.”
