English is a discipline that inspires majors to become both students and disciples of the written word. Through careful reading of and writing about literature, and with attention to both critical and creative uses of language, you become attuned to the pleasures and purposes of writing. The LMU English department educates students in the history of literatures in English, encourages them to develop their own voice and style, and provides deep practice in critical reading and writing in preparation for graduate study and a diverse range of professions. LMU English majors intensively engage in reading and writing literature.

LMU's Screenwriting major helps students understand that all great movies and television shows - be they drama, comedy, action-adventure, romance or thriller - begin with a story served by the written word. The mission of LMU's School of Film and Television Screenwriting program is to provide the best possible education in the art and craft of creating those stories, and writing those words. Faculty members in the Screenwriting program are committed to helping each student find his or her creative voice and express that voice cinematically and professionally in an environment that is supportive, constructive, and fun. Screenwriting majors gain a solid foundation in the liberal arts, taking classes in the University core in order to deepen and broaden their capacity to communicate to audiences their world perspective. Majors move into more specific coursework, delving deep into their imaginations and personal lives to come up with stories that will entertain, amuse, uplift, and challenge audiences.
