Discover where words can take you

Put your words to work.

To study English is to invest in your own skills as a critical thinker and communicator. It’s training for life, for career, and for participation in society. The reading, writing, and thinking skills you get here will come with you wherever you go.

English offers undergraduate courses, minors, and major concentrations in literature, creative writing, and public & professional writing. Each is a variation of the things we all share.

Read the world. Write the world. Write your place in it.
