Areas of Study Overview

No single disciplinary perspective adequately accounts for the complexities of how people use language, participate in communication and create and understand texts. Our very strength as a department of English thus rests with our aggregate of different disciplines that explore multiple aspects of human communications. Multidisciplinary perspectives of Creative Writing, English Education, Film and Media Studies, Linguistics and Applied Linguistics, Literature, and Writing, Rhetorics and Literacies create contrasting and complementary theoretical and methodological approaches to understanding and teaching how people engage language, and create, consume and circulate texts in diverse media.
