Department of English

Chair: Dr. Amy Berke

The Department of English at Middle Georgia State University is home to the baccalaureate degree in English. The department is committed to preparing our graduates to be reflective professionals with an exceptionally strong content knowledge in English, a commitment to their chosen profession, a willingness to engage in professional development long after they graduate, and a desire to use their expertise to provide service within diverse communities. The curriculum for the program, in addition to preparing students for graduate studies, the teaching profession, or law school, provides essential preparation for a variety of career paths. In the twenty-first century global job market, where requirements for technical skills change rapidly, employers are finding that liberal arts graduates are highly suited for long-term success in today’s economy. Employers increasingly look for skills that the English graduate possesses: the ability to communicate clearly, to solve complex problems, and to think critically.
