BACHELOR OF ARTS

Montana has a rich writing tradition.

The English department at the University of Montana Western is an intellectual haven for students with a passion for reading and writing. Students who investigate literature and language at UMW do so in an environment that promotes open inquiry, critical reading, analytical writing and rich dialogue.

Moving beyond traditional approaches, the English program encourages students to develop their own voices. Students respond critically, culturally and creatively to literature in seminars and small classes that promote active learning and experiential opportunities.

UMW English majors graduate prepared for careers in editing, journalism, public relations, communications and other related fields. A major in English also positions students to succeed in graduate school in journalism, creative writing, English, education and law.
