Did You Know?

  • The English major features small classes of students working closely with highly accomplished faculty to develop analytical and writing skills. Students can expect to be challenged, stretched, trained, and informed (as well as amused, moved, amazed, maybe even transformed). The English major allows flexible plans of study appropriate for different career aspirations.
  • The English Department awarded over $65,000 in scholarships to our undergraduate majors for Academic Year 2019-20
  • Our Graduate students received: $507,000 in tuition remission, $777,000 in stipends, and $50,000 in Grants, Fellowships, and Minerva Scholarships. For a grand total of $1,334,000 in financial assistance!
