English and Communication Department

We believe that a student’s critical awareness of the world and adeptness in oral and written communications provide a lasting basis for professional success and a fulfilling life.

By providing solid grounding in literary studies, professional writing, communication studies, strategic communication or English education, courses in each major develop the skills and perspective that enable students to adapt to change and devise creative solutions to new problems. And we also offer internship opportunities and a variety of extracurricular activities.

Dynamic classes, a growing number of majors, and the long-term success of our alumni demonstrate the relevance of our programs to a diverse and changing society. Fontbonne students who have majored in English or communication studies have pursued careers in law, advertising, public relations, teaching, business, politics and journalism.
