Learn language to launch your profession

Language holds the power to enhance the quality of life, providing the basis of books, radio, theater, film, teaching, and many other forms of communication. Therefore, learning how to use language correctly and effectively in PCC’s English major can lay the foundation for many career opportunities.

For students interested in studying words, language, and communication, the English major provides advanced grammar and writing courses that equip students to use these tools effectively. Students can then apply what they learn to future pursuits in law, writing, business, education, and many other fields.

A variety of literature courses allow students to study in greater depth specific authors and genres, developing a lasting appreciation for literature. As they study classic works, advanced grammar, and writing techniques, students become equipped with language tools that prepare them for a variety of careers.

Graduate Perspective

When I came to PCC, I came with the hopes of getting what my father called ‘a liberal arts education’. I did not understand what that fully meant until I began working towards my degree in English. The wide variety of humanities classes which I have taken such as French, Latin, and Shakespeare, as well as the opportunities I have been given to be in Fine Arts productions, have given me a broad knowledge and understanding of where we as people are today, where we have come from, and where we are headed. I am so thankful for the education that PCC has given me and am excited to see how the Lord will use my education for His glory.
