Learning to Shape the World

Why Study English?

English is more than just the study of the English language. As an English major at Merrimack College, you will learn how literature, film and other forms of storytelling can influence social change, challenge history and rewrite cultural myths. You will develop an understanding of the entire creative process, from the creation of imaginative writing to the interpretation of it by skilled readers. 

Why English at Merrimack?

  • Access to the Writers House means you can participate in open mics, poetry slams, literary journals and staged readings.
  • Creative Writing and Film concentrations let you choose a subject area that interests you most.
  • Paid departmental internships in research, social media and newsletter creation give you valuable field experience.
