We study language and literature, the way we express ourselves, frame questions, deepen understanding, and solve problems. Our goal is to give voice to our students and communities.
Classes in the English department are small. You'll get spend quality time with our award-winning faculty. The Writing Center, Center for the Study of Rhetoric in Society, and the Center for Applied Technologies in the Humanities are all hosted here. A speaker series brings prominent writers and critics to campus. We support the hypertext journal of creative writing and art, The New River Journal, as well as Stephen Crane Studies. We also support the undergraduate magazines, Silhouette and Brush Mountain Review.
