UCCS English Department Mission Statement

Welcome to the web page of the Department of English at the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs. We offer the B.A. in English with options in Literature, Professional and Technical Writing, and Rhetoric and Writing. We also offer the B.A. in English with options in Teacher Education, either Elementary or Secondary. We offer a variety of Minors including a Minor in Creative Writing. At first glance, you may think that teaching is all you can do with an English degree; teaching at any level is an important and meaningful career, and our graduates place well. But the English major offers a lot of flexibility; indeed, it has been called the most useful pre-professional degree.
