The undergraduate major program equips students with the skills and concepts that make the English major an asset in the modern world. In addition to literary analysis in both traditional and contemporary forms, the major helps students explore historical and cultural developments and invites them into the worlds of textual studies and digital humanities. All courses at all levels of the program encourage students to become clear and effective writers.

The traditional strengths of the Department include a strong writing program; both survey and specialized courses ranging from Old English to contemporary writing; and a vital and growing creative writing concentration. Required courses in literary theory and multiculturalism ensure that the all majors become aware of the most recent developments in our discipline. In addition to required courses, the major includes five electives. Students are encouraged to use those electives to focus on such areas as world literature in English and cultural studies. Students may also take courses in advanced writing or creative writing and pursue internship opportunities.

The Creative Writing Program offers introductory and advanced workshops in fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction. Each workshop is a small, supportive community for submitting creative work and learning, under the guidance of the professor, how to become attuned to what makes a piece of writing fulfill its promise. In the intro workshops, students work closely with the professor to analyze published work so as to develop a common vocabulary of craft elements; using that framework, students learn to approach their own creative work and that of others with a deeper appreciation of authorial choices, and begin to develop their own criteria for revision of their own work.

The advanced workshops are a natural progression from the intro workshops, and ask students to take greater risks in their writing and greater responsibility for their own development and sensibilities as readers and writers.

The professors are all accomplished writers, with years of experience writing for publication and working with editors.
