Through our programs in literary studies and writing, we offer an education in humane letters based on the principles of writing and the literary traditions of English in Great Britain, the Americas, Africa, and Asia.

Our offerings include a major and a minor in literary studies and a major and a minor in writing with tracks in either creative or professional writing.  We also offer a Master of Arts in English Studies and Communication, a Master of Arts in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL), and courses that fulfill requirements for the Master of Arts in Liberal Studies degree, with or without a concentration in English.  New to our offerings is also an undergraduate minor in TESOL.

  • Why English?  Why enroll in an English class, become an English major or minor, or pursue a graduate degree in English?
