Welcome to Arkansas State University!


Bachelor of Arts (B.A.)

College: College of Liberal Arts & Communication

Department: English and Philosophy


The B.A. in English is the quintessential Liberal Arts Degree. English B.A. graduates are likely to be seen anywhere -- sitting in a law school class; reading in a coffee shop on the campus where they teach English; working in a government office; working as a technical writer trying to rephrase something from computer-speak to ordinary English ; or preparing for the ministry in a seminary. If you love literature or if feel a need to be writing, you have found the right degree.

For information about the B.A. in English, email the department secretary, Brandie Tibbs.


A degree in English provides a broad preparation for life, and English majors are increasingly sought as teachers, as students in law schools and other professional schools, as newspaper reporters and as management trainees. 


Curriculum and degree requirements can be found in the most current Undergraduate Bulletin.
