The English Department is a close-knit community of scholars who embrace the written word. Faculty and students conduct close readings of literary works and engage in critiques and conversations about the culture, history, and representations within and outside of literary texts.
A Community of Scholars
Our faculty are active researchers in a variety of fields, spanning the breadth of literary history and offering global perspectives alongside focused work in British and American literature. Faculty work closely with students, supervising independent research in thesis and capstone projects.
As a graduate student in English, you’ll work closely with a faculty member on your research, culminating in a thesis.
Undergraduate Research and Creative Work
As an undergraduate student in English, you’ll receive support from faculty mentors to pursue your research and creative work, with the opportunity to present your findings. You also may submit creative work to our annual writing contests.
