A Community of Scholars, Writers and Readers

The Department of English faculty members form a community of readers and writers who pursue the study of humane letters for both aesthetic and practical reasons.

In keeping with the liberal arts tradition of general education, we promote the basic intellectual skills of critical reading and writing as well as the kind of
understanding of the human condition that comes from the experience and appreciation of serious literature.

Our majors include English education, linguistics, composition studies, professional writing, film studies, creative writing and literature. It all begins with words on a page. 

English Majors Turn Passions into Profits

In a recent article in The Atlantic, Jordan Weissmann says statistics show English majors find more jobs after graduation.  Employers hire critical thinkers who communicate well. Our majors and minors apply their passions for language, literature, and writing into jobs across industries.

Like our diverse course offerings, there are many more reasons to pursue an English degree.

Flexible career choices. Real-world preparation for life beyond the classroom.  

Make the smart choice: study what you love.
