About Us

The English Department offers a variety of courses in creative writing, linguistics, literature, pedagogy, rhetoric, and technical communication. These courses foster students' abilities to think critically, to read analytically, and to communicate effectively in oral and written form. Because these advanced literary skills are in high demand, our former students have found careers in fields such as teaching, technical/professional writing, editing, publishing, advertising, public relations, and nonprofits, as well as in business, financial services, and banking. Others have pursued advanced degrees in literature, law, medicine, teaching, and business administration.
