BA in English

Why Mason?

The Smithsonian Institution, the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, the Library of Congress – just three reasons why Mason is an ideal place to study English. Located minutes from Washington, D.C., we offer you more affordable access to learning and career opportunities than any other university in the region.

Faculty members often incorporate the unique resources of our region into their courses – attending a play at the Folger Theater as part of a course on Shakespeare, for instance.
