English Degree

Multnomah’s English major will engage you through discussing great books and viewing the world through a variety of windows. By learning to interpret literary works, you will also become a better writer. Our English classes are substantive but not overwhelming; they complement MU’s Bible and theology core while still allowing latitude in elective classes.

Points of distinction 

  1. Multnomah students take a more substantive core of Bible and theology courses, which leads to a more fully realized integration of God’s Word in the English classroom.
  2. With these building blocks in place, students can now consider the importance of empathy. All of the learning and training in the world do little good unless moored securely to the abiding stay of love and compassion for others.
  3. The result of all this is civility, hospitality, and sincerity, grounded in God’s love for us and for others. At Multnomah, English students will be encouraged toward these important truths throughout their time in the English program.
  4. In Multnomah’s English program, students are not only trained to think expansively, but also responsibly. Forming ideas and reaching conclusions is difficult, but the benefits far outweigh the challenges, allowing students to think well.
  5. Students who think well are in a position to write well. Multnomah’s English students are trained to write clearly and knowledgeably.
