    ​"There is no other skill I cherish more than the ability to write. My job demands perfection when it comes to grammar, accuracy and objectivity, and it needs to happen fast. Those days (and nights) spent at Memorial Hall, The Review and WVUD-FM were key in developing this skill, obtaining a job in broadcasting, and advancing in the industry."

    ​“Learning how to be a reader is to be as human as any of us can imagine. For me, an education in the humanities helps to render the world into a language that is legible, profound, mysterious and complex.”

  • Brian W. Gastle
    Department Head and Professor of English at Western Carolina University

    ​“UD provided a solid foundation for my career by allowing me to teach a wide variety of classes. It also allowed me to pursue scholarship important to me, but it tempered my personal desires with an eye towards the market and landing a job.  I’ve got a great one now, and I owe much of that to the opportunities UD provided.”

  • Brian L. Byrd
    Academic Coordinator of Student Support Services at Paul Quinn College

    "Under the mentorship and tutelage of Professors Carol Henderson and Heyward Brock, my UD English bachelor's degree honed my writing, research, and interests on diverse issues of the human condition, specifically focusing on morality, ethics and civic justice."

    ​"I am delighted that I get to both teach and write for a living. The support and modeling that the English Education faculty provided helped me hone my skills as an educator, and create a teaching philosophy that allows me to move all students to achieve at high levels."

  • Michael A. Iannucci

    ​"I credit my UD education for much of my success. The faculty are some of the most intelligent and kindest people you will ever meet. My English professors taught me how to think creatively, read analytically, and write persuasively. Simply put, UD is an amazing place where dreams come true."
