A degree in English is a valuable tool as you build your professional and academic career. Students of linguistics, literature, and education enjoy learning in an international setting. The LCC English department promotes learning, teaching and research of topics that emphasize the current global importance of the English language and its traditions.
The English Language and Literature program is designed for a wide range of future possibilities because it includes preparation in the fields of teaching, translation and interpretation, and literature. Students choose the English program because they wish to be involved in the international world of teaching, business, government, international affairs, peacemaking and any occupation that calls for highly-developed skills in oral and written communication.
The international nature of LCC International University provides an excellent context for linguistics. Students will live and study in a multicultural environment so students observe theory being practiced both in the classroom and immediately outside the classroom.
English majors build their own program based on their interests and abilities.
