Writing and literature for the future


The study of language, writing, and literature is about passion and Heidelberg’s Department of English offers a variety of courses that will cultivate that passion.




Courses in English help students refine critical thinking, analytical, and writing skills, as well as create an appreciation for literature. These techniques help prepare students for the professional world and many careers. English majors can find jobs in almost any field, including law, journalism, public relations, education, freelance writing, public services, and many more. English complements other fields of study and often can be used as a pre-professional degree.
