Historically Black Voorhees College Reinstates English Degree Program

Voorhees College, a historically black liberal arts institution in Denmark, South Carolina, has offered majors in more than two dozen subjects from physics to music. But until now the college did not offer a degree program in English.

This coming fall, students will be able to declare an English major for the first time in many years. Voorhees president Cleveland Sellers stated, “Reinstating English as a major is a critical milestone. English is an invaluable preparation for many different career paths.”
