Welcome to the Department of English! With more than 50 full-time faculty representing five fields, we are the largest academic department on campus, yet we still have some of the smallest class sizes for undergraduate courses. This unique position allows us to develop inclusive experiences with language and literacy, as we invite all students to be careful, compassionate, and creative thinkers and problem-solvers. We encourage students to actively cultivate their knowledge through student organizations, internships, study-abroad, and service-learning projects.
