    The Belmont English Department is a very special home away from home. I have been challenged by rigorous course material and classes as I expand my knowledge regarding literature, rhetoric, and different forms of writing, while also pursuing an English-specific internship opportunity here in Nashville. At the same time, I have been cared for by professors who take the time to get to know me outside of the classroom. They bring baked goods to class, invite my class to their home, and genuinely care for each and every one of their students and their career aspirations. I cannot think of a better environment in which to grow and to explore my passions during these formative college years.

Let your love for reading and writing lead to a dream career

English majors revel in reading and writing as acts of love and creativity, of imagination and the human need to communicate. Offering both Literature and Writing tracks, Belmont's English majors experience dynamic, interactive courses that provide ample preparation for a variety of personal and professional aspirations. The curriculum covers the gamut of poetry, fiction, nonfiction, writing and rhetoric with specific courses on everything from Arthurian Romance to African American Literature to Creative Writing to the Art of the Essay.

Best of all, the English major or minor is both flexible and practical. Graduates of Belmont’s program are now authors, 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. It's education for living.

Opportunities abound for students to share their work as they pursue their degree. Outstanding papers are presented annually at the Belmont Undergraduate Research Symposium, and students can demonstrate their scholarship and creativity via numerous other outlets, including campus media, literary journals, internships and blogs.

Taught by dedicated professors who take the time to get to know you, courses in the English major will challenge you to expand your appreciation for the variety of human experience and the richness of the written word.
