About Us

English majors, minors, and graduate students develop skills in analysis, critical thinking, writing, and communication through their study of literature, language, rhetoric, creative writing, and publishing. As they work toward their degrees, students have the opportunity to emphasize in one of these areas and work closely with faculty who specialize in these fields.

Our faculty members are widely recognized in their fields of expertise, collectively publishing more than 20 books in the last five years and winning prestigious awards, including Guggenheim Fellowships, National Endowment of the Arts Fellowships, and National Endowment of the Humanities Grants.

Graduates are equipped with a wide range of marketable skills that prepare them for a variety of careers in education, journalism, publishing, nonprofit administration, and marketing.
