The Department of English and Philosophy at Purdue Calumet offers a Bachelor of Arts in English, with options in Literature, Writing, and Teaching. Students also may minor in English. An Online Certificate in Writing for Interactive Media is available.
In literature and writing courses, English majors are introduced to demands of college reading and writing so that they will be prepared for the rest of their academic careers and for their lives beyond college.
Writing majors learn the practical aspects of communicating on the job, in business or in industry, to prepare for careers in publishing, editing, writing, and technical communication.
Purdue Calumet also offers a Bachelor of Arts degree in Philosophy. Philosophy offers a sound foundation for careers and for advanced degrees in business, law, government, management, the ministry, and education, as well as a background for any field of study - such as computer science - which emphasizes logical and critical thinking.
The practical nature of these majors is supplemented by internships in local businesses and government agencies and cooperative education experiences, alternating work and study experiences.
