About Our Undergraduate Program

The Department of English is proud of our reputation for excellent, award-winning teaching based on faculty research and close attention to students.

Courses offered through the English Department engage critically and creatively with the languages and literatures of the Anglophone world. Our students and faculty are scholars and creators of literature, linguistics, rhetoric, critical theory, culture, pedagogy, film, digital humanities, and the media arts. The diversity of our approaches to knowledge-making reflects our passion about the historic and future roles of the study of language and literature in changing the world around us.
