The Department of English houses Old Westbury's Writing Programs and offers the Bachelor of Arts Degree in English and graduate degree programs in Adolescence Education: English (7-12).

The undergraduate degree builds on common foundations and offers two upper-level concentrations: Multicultural U.S.-British Literature and World Literature.

Offered in collaboration with the School of Education, the graduate programs lead candidates to either a Master of Arts in Teaching or a Master of Science in Adolescence Education (7-12).

For more information on degree programs, visit the English Department's Majors and Minors page.

Committed to the living spirit of literature and to the enabling possibilities of language, the English Department provides a variety of curricular and co-curricular projects to involve students in that discovery and development which mark the enlightened and lively study of literature.


Graduates of this program will be excellently prepared to enter graduate school in the proliferating fields of Multicultural English Literature and World Literature.  English continues to be one of the best preparations for law, business, and other professions.
