Observe the story of humanity, expressed in words, turns of phrase and rhythm, across barriers of culture, language, time, and distance.
English majors may choose among three concentrations at Franciscan: British and American Literature, Western and World Literature, or Writing.
If your academic interests include studying the Medieval, Renaissance, and Early Modern periods, we offer semester experiences at the Centre for Medieval and Renaissance Studies at Oxford University in England.
This Core Curriculum "reflects our ongoing
commitment to academic excellence and the integration of faith and
reason. Based on the Western intellectual tradition, our Franciscan
educational heritage, and the Catholic mission of Franciscan University,
the new core purposefully exposes our students to more of the
fundamental knowledge and critical authors they need to become
well-educated Catholics" —Father Terence Henry, TOR, chancellor of
Franciscan University of Steubenville
