In addition to majors and minors in English and writing studies, the English department also houses the WRT 100 and ENG 110 programs. Both WRT 100 (Writing and Rhetoric) and ENG 110 (Literary Perspectives) are required for all students at Niagara University. We also offer a variety of electives in literature and writing that can fulfill general education requirements. Curious about why people study English? We've got some answers for you.
