Overview of the department
The English department offers three majors: linguistics, literature, and writing.
This handout summarizes the requirements for the linguistics, literature, and writing majors and also includes tables for converting old course numbers to new (and vice versa).
The Career Development page offers plenty of general information on internships.

What do our majors do after graduating? They keep writing! Check out the new alumni blog, “the post calvin: thirty under thirty, post-diploma.” The blog features 28 Calvin alumni writers under age 30 (plus guests), most of them with a major or minor from the English department. New posts every day!
