Full Faculty Listing
The aim of the Department of English is to give students competency in written and oral composition and in the interpretation and appreciation of literature. All students are required to earn credit for R C 1000 and R C 2001 . (R C 1000 is a prerequisite for all ENG and RC courses 2001 and above.)
Honors Program in English
The Department of English offers an honors program on the sophomore and junior/senior levels. In order to remain in the program, students must maintain at least a “B” average in honors work. Invited English majors meeting the requirements of the junior/senior honors program (ENG 4508 , ENG 4509 , and ENG 4510 ) with a grade of “B” or better and at least a 3.45 grade-point average in all English course work will graduate with “honors in English.”
Overseas Study Program
In keeping with the University’s belief that studies and travel abroad contribute to its role as an institution of higher learning, the Department of English offers students an opportunity to study either in England or on the continent, or in some instances a combination of both. The programs are directed by regular faculty members and offer opportunities for both supervised group study and individual investigation. Information is available each fall concerning the specific programs to be offered for undergraduate and graduate credit. Students interested in the possibility of such study should make inquiry at the English office early in the school year.

The Writing Center offers its services to all members of the University community. The center’s staff is specially trained to help in the completion of virtually any academic writing project and in the solution of most writing problems.
