Concordia University's Humanities department offers talented and dedicated faculty in a caring academic community. Small classes help you develop critical reading, thinking and communication skills, and the opportunity to work closely with both faculty and fellow students.
Majors in English, History and Humanities provide a bridge to your career. Our graduates are writers, teachers, social activists, and business and church leaders. They go to graduate school, law school, work at newspapers and magazines, or serve the community in churches and social service agencies.
A wide variety of course offerings in literature, history and writing—often with an interdisciplinary bent—are only the beginning of the Humanities encounter at Concordia University. A special feature of our program is the senior experience, a thesis written in close consultation with a faculty member. English majors may chose to do an internship working with a publishing company, newspaper, magazine or advertising agency for their senior project. Extracurricular activities include editing or writing for the literary magazine, The Promethean; an active Sigma Tau Delta English Honor Society, the annual Shakespeare Authorship Studies Conference, and the Humanities Club, an opportunity to go to movies, plays, readings and discussions with students and teachers.
