Department of English


Lawyers must read deeply, analyze complicated texts, formulate views, and clearly express these views in writing and oral presentation - exactly the skills that the Xavier English program emphasizes. Our graduates have gone on to work in such fields as entertainment law, corporate law, and they have even written federal legislation.

Law Schools are looking for Xavier University English majors. With our new Pre-Law Center English majors and all students interested in law as a career receive expert advising and extra-curricular workshops and training.
