The English Department is here to help you develop your voice, critical mind, and creative potential by guiding you to write for college and beyond. In our foundational writing courses, you will have a chance to build confidence and take on new challenges as writers and readers, guided by dedicated and supportive faculty.
We encourage students who enjoy our introductory courses to consider majors in English; Creative Writing; Journalism; Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies (WGS); and Ethnic Studies. Students who choose our majors can expect to work closely with our faculty who are experts in their areas of research and passionate about student learning and advisement. Whether you major in English, Creative Writing, Journalism, WGS, or simply want to explore our classes as electives, we offer a variety of courses that introduce students to diverse authors, hands-on research, and dynamic publication and internship opportunities.
