Students investigate literary works through discussion and writing, as well as reading and thinking to prepare them for their career of choice in literature, education, or writing.
English professors introduce students to the great heritage of Western literature, placed in context with classical and Christian humanism. MC's English and Philosophy Department offers three different focuses to fit with each student's needs. Writing, education, and literature concentrations are enhanced with real-world experience, practice in the classroom, and even study abroad opportunities.
Outside of the classroom, English students have the opportunity to intern with local businesses and publishers such as Ergon, Mississippi Magazine, MPB, and Quail Hollow Press. Students can also help produce the Arrowhead, a student-published literary magazine featuring stories, poems, photos, and articles written by students, alumni, and faculty members.
Boost your writing skills at the Mississippi College Writing Center, which provides free tutoring and consultations to MC students. The Center is staffed by fellow undergrads, who conduct interactive, one-on-one sessions with students of every major, providing intensive assistance with the writing process. Students with strong writing skills are given the opportunity to become tutors themselves.
