English Department Banner


Our students read a wide variety of British, World, and American literature, ranging from the traditional “masterpieces” to works that challenge such restrictive notions by writers whose contributions have historically been ignored. Our dedicated and diverse faculty of published literary scholars challenge students to develop the analytical and communicative abilities that produce complex and sophisticated readings of literature.

Check out the degree requirements or contact the lead advisor of the literature program, Cathy Day, for more information.
