The English Department provides undergraduate students with skills necessary for professional careers in:

  • Education
  • Media
  • Law
  • Writing
  • All fields that value strong written and oral communication skills.

Students who study English at Roberts engage in “conversations” with some of the most famous and important writers of all time (Shakespeare, Austen, Milton, Dickinson, Melville, among many others) and learn to craft their own views of the world – informed by the inspiration of those who have come before us.
