The English department offers a rich curriculum that covers topics in writing, literature and teaching through a variety of undergraduate majors, minors and emphases, in addition to a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing, a Master of Liberal Arts and licensure in English as a Second Language.
Courses are taught by highly educated and highly published faculty with diverse teaching and professional backgrounds whose expertise spans an array of specialty areas, including composition, American, British and World literature, creative writing, technical report writing, publishing, and more. Together students and faculty are part of a vibrant literary community that draws distinguished visiting authors to campus through the Glasrud Lecture Series and McGrath Visiting Writers Series. Students are incredibly active outside the classroom through opportunities to become involved in Sigma Tau Delta, the English Honor Society; Red Weather, the campus literary magazine; the Write Site, a student tutoring service; and New Rivers Press, a nonprofit literary small press. Graduates of the program are poised to excel in graduate school or a variety of English-related careers as writers, editors, publishers, teachers and more.
