We are a diverse department of scholars and practitioners who study and teach the power of language. We help our students find their own voices as writers, thinkers, and storytellers. We are specialists in literature, criticism, and theory, working to understand the human experience, past and present, through its graceful, powerful expression in every genre. We are creative writers, publishing and teaching the craft of poetry, fiction, creative non-fiction, and emerging forms. We are rhetoricians, linguists, and technical writers, studying and teaching the social and scientific principles of communication. We allow our undergraduates to choose their preferred concentration, and we have a lively, funded graduate program with M.A., MFA., and PhD degrees across these fields. We love what we do; come see why.
