Majors, minors, and graduate programs offered through the Department of English emphasize rigorous academic engagement, independent scholarship, and cross-disciplinary collaboration. As participants in this community, students work closely with faculty and peers, and benefit from lectures and performances by visiting scholars and writers, as well as off-campus and experiential learning opportunities.
