With over 100 full-time faculty and over 100 graduate students, the department of English is a vibrant and energetic collection of teachers, scholars, researchers, and writers. We offer three degrees: a B.A. in English, an M.A. in English with concentrations in eight different areas, and a Ph.D. in Technical & Professional Discourse. We also offer an undergraduate certificate in technical and professional communication and post-baccalaureate degrees in professional communication and multicultural and transnational literatures.

The diversity of the department is one of its strengths: we feature courses in literature, creative writing, technical and professional communication, rhetoric and composition, multicultural and transnational literatures, linguistics, theory and criticism, folklore, children's literature, teaching English to speakers of other languages, and film studies.
