Department of English and Fine Arts
When you major in English at the Air Force Academy, you prepare yourself to join a long line of leaders throughout history who have used their skills as readers, thinkers, and communicators to effect change. All of our majors receive a commission as an Air Force lieutenant, fully qualified to enter almost all career fields. Our majors continue to serve as pilots, navigators, missile officers, intelligence officers, maintenance officers, personnel officers, communication officers, and in many other fields. Some receive advanced degrees in English and return to the Academy as faculty members. The essence of the English major at USAFA consists of literature, imagination, and communication as deliberate human endeavors.
