The English Department is home to faculty with a broad range of expertise, including literary studies, film studies, journalism, creative writing, professional writing, English education, and drama. We consider this disciplinary diversity a strength and hallmark of the department. It fosters productive intellectual cross-currents for students and faculty alike. The recent revision of our undergraduate curriculum allows students to range more freely across these fields, while also allowing for a deepening knowledge of a particular subject.Most of our courses are relatively small (35 is the enrollment limit on most courses; introductory 100-level courses are limited to 22; 400-level seminars and creative writing workshops are limited to 15). This allows for engaging discussions in the classroom, for more personal writing instruction, and for familiar faculty-student relations.Beyond the classroom experience, undergraduates can participate in the intellectual life of the department through research groups, independent studies, theses, internships, and student publications.
