As an English major at Cal State Fullerton, you enter a community of researchers and educators who care intensely about the study of literature and writing and who value the learning that happens in the classroom and in the hallways and walkways between classrooms. At Cal State Fullerton, you will have the opportunity to take classes from faculty who have completed advanced study in literature from a variety of cultural and historical traditions, including literary studies, literary theory, creative writing, rhetorical studies, and English education. You will also have the chance to develop leadership skills in English service organizations and academic programs and to hone advanced research and communication techniques through collaborative research with your fellow students and with faculty.
Our major program emphasizes the production of academic, professional, and creative writing and the study of the literatures of England and America, and intersecting countries across the globe. Faculty will ask you to examine the diverse ways in which writing and literature let us see the past, understand advanced rhetorical and linguistic techniques, and make sense of the world through narrative.
