Admissions: Programs of Study

English: Secondary Education

At Marywood, you’ll find a comprehensive curriculum in English and World Literature, a dedicated and engaging faculty – and a background in critical thinking and writing that will serve you well whatever your goals. You’ll develop your abilities to think, to write, to communicate: skills that you can use everywhere from the classroom to the office to the web. You’ll be required to think critically and analyze what you read for quality, merit, and reason. The background you’ll gain in English and other world literatures—and the histories and cultures behind them—will help prepare you to realize the goal of every Marywood student’s education: you’ll be learning to live responsibly in a world where persons are increasingly interdependent.
