Transformative knowledge. Transferable skills. Learning for life.
We offer a wide variety of courses in classic, modern, and postmodern literature;
in speculative fiction and experimental writing; in digital humanities, videogame
narrative, and environmental humanities. Our courses are taught by professors who
are active scholars and writers, and who bring their cutting-edge research and creative
activities into the classroom.
Our students learn agile, independent thinking and clear, precise, imaginative writing.
These skills are essential to many professions, and our alumni have gone on to successful
careers in law, business, government, education, medicine, tech, and media. Employers
value English majors because they know how to how to think creatively and present
their ideas forcefully.
