WCSU’s English and Interdisciplinary Studies teaches students to read analytically, think critically and write clearly. You’ll explore complex questions and problems from more than one disciplinary perspective. You will develop skills of creative and critical thinking, insightful interpretation and articulate communication in speech and writing — all essential for professional success.
English courses prepare students for success in a wide variety of careers. Our academic programs prepare students to enter fields where knowledge of texts, historical contexts, written and oral communication, and the powers of analysis and critical thinking are vital.
While many of our students find themselves well-prepared to teach English in elementary and secondary schools and to pursue graduate study in English, the English major prepares students for success in any field, such as law, publishing, marketing and advertising. We consider the English degree to be the “degree for life.”
Interdisciplinary studies courses encourage students to think beyond traditional disciplinary boundaries and emphasize creative and critical thinking in addressing the complex questions and challenges of an interconnected world. Our courses explore subjects, topics and problems from the perspective of at least three integrated disciplines, drawing from the arts, the humanities, the sciences, the social sciences, and professional studies.
The Interdisciplinary Studies major allows you to combine two different disciplines to best suit your interests and career plans. Design your own degree, and let us prepare you for the real world!
