The study of English language and literature is nothing less than the study of human experience and the ways in which our shared reality has been created and communicated throughout history.
This exploration entails an in-depth study and knowledge of history, philosophy, the arts, and scientific inquiry.
Because of this breadth and depth of study, graduates with English degrees are poised to move into positions as diverse as management, human resources, marketing, sales, media, advertising, publishing, teaching, creative writing, editing, grant and technical writing, and a wide host of others.
A degree in English also provides a solid foundation for advanced education, including graduate and law school.
The English Department is home to a diverse group of majors and programs including the College Writing Program (CWP); undergraduate degree programs in English, Writing, and English Education; graduate degree programs in English and English Education; minors in Literary Studies, English Education, Writing, and Film Studies, a Certification Program in English Education, and a Certificate in Technical Writing.
Our courses are taught by a dedicated and diverse group of award winning teacher/scholars who are leaders in their areas of expertise. Our dedicated faculty work with students both in and out of the classroom to engage texts critically and carefully, write well, think creatively, respect and embrace diversity, and understand how language and literature shape human experience.
