A Le Moyne education invites students to live lives of service, faith, intellect, and integrity.
A Jesuit education is not simply about reading from a textbook or researching information online.
Le Moyne is the second youngest of the 28 Jesuit colleges and universities in the United States.
More than just the members of the Society of Jesus, our Jesuit community extends to all corners of our campus.
Some things last the test of time. That includes the rich, 500-year-old Jesuit heritage upon which the College was founded.

The Department of English offers two concentrations of study: Literature and Creative Writing. Both of these courses of study are committed to the discovery of meaning and value in language—a commitment that is grounded in contemporary academic and professional concerns with English as well as in humankind’s enduring traditions of self-expression, speculative inquiry, and social communication through literature and the rhetorical arts.
The Literature and Creative Writing concentrations are designed to:
As a Le Moyne English major, you can earn a Bachelor of Arts degree in English and a Master of Science Degree in Teaching in five years of study. As a student in the five-year program, you’ll save time and money earning your master’s degree and enter the high school or middle school job market with more intensive preparation in literature, writing, and teaching methods.
For more information about this innovative program, contact the chair of the English Department.
At Le Moyne, English majors don’t just read literature, they also experience it firsthand. With innovative courses that take students to London, Paris, Harlem, and New England, Le Moyne students get to learn firsthand about the places that inspired such great writers as Charles Dickens, Ernest Hemingway, Zora Neale Hurston, and Emily Dickinson. As an English major, you can take a course, go on a literary study tour, and enhance your understanding of literature in the company of professors and students who share a love for literature and experiential learning.
See the Le Moyne College catalog for more information about courses in the Department of English.
