There, their, they're. We have an English major for that.

Charles A. Cannon College of Arts and Sciences

As an English major, you learn to think critically while honing your analytical abilities and polishing your communication skills. You have the chance to work with faculty on research or as their assistants.

You also sharpen your professional communication skills by taking courses in professional and technical writing and desktop publishing. You can use your elective hours for a second major or a double minor.

worked as a corporate trainer since I left Wingate, and my English degree has been invaluable in this regard. It’s helped me write with the clarity and accuracy that are necessary to teach someone else how to perform a task. You will graduate with those same tools in your possession.Adam Raskoskie, Class of 2009, English Major

"My favorite course at Wingate was Linguistics. I love language and learning about how words and phrases and slang develop over time. I think my Wingate education will help me make a difference in my community by teaching me how to help others."
