We encourage transdisciplinary studies by offering a diverse array of minors and certificates. Topics range from teaching English to speakers of other languages to digital media to environmental humanities.  Our students also have the opportunity to earn BA degrees in English and Film and Media Studies completely online.  

The distinguished faculty in the Department of English are actively engaged in creative writing and scholarly research.  Students gain practical experience through research and internships that prepare them for an ever-expanding variety of careers.  Participation in clubs and events helps students form relationships in their field of interest.  The undergraduate programs also prepare students to continue their studies in graduate and professional programs.
