The English Department is proud of its world-class faculty and staff, its dynamic course offerings, its rigorous yet adaptive curriculum, and its amazing and inspiring students. We offer our students the opportunity to study and work with texts and media that have shaped, and been shaped by, the English language – our diverse spectrum of classes covers a wide variety of topics in literature, media, composition, cultural theory, and language studies ranging from antiquity to the twenty-first century. In our classes students explore multiple cultural traditions and cultivate skills in critical thinking, creative expression, close reading, persuasive writing, and effective speaking.
The department provides small, student-centered classes, innovative educational methods, and close faculty-student interaction. Our faculty members have earned numerous awards for excellence in teaching, research, and writing; they are nationally and internationally recognized in creative and critical fields. Our students have amassed an enviable record of placement in graduate programs and professional positions. We thank you for your investment in them!
Gifts to the English Department allow us to enrich the student experience in a variety of ways. Your gift to the English Department will fund student-faculty research, student travel to conferences, guest speakers, student-led enrichment initiatives, career networking opportunities (including networking events involving our students and our alumni), and most importantly, student scholarships.
