Combining tradition and innovation, the major in English gives students an understanding of imaginative and cultural processes and products that is broad, deep, and contextually rich. Courses in English help students develop skills and knowledge necessary for an examined life, a successful career, and responsible membership in a global society.

English majors can choose between tracks in literature and creative writing. In addition, the English department administers the major in Comparative Literature.

The department offers minor programs in English and Film Studies and administers the concentration in English for Education majors.
