The Department of English

The English major offers students the skills of close reading, creative writing, literary interpretation, critical analysis, historical research, and rigorous, respectful debate. Our renowned programs in creative and critical writing help students find their own voice while they learn how literature and language have influenced the values and lived experience of societies over the centuries and across geographical boundaries.
